  1. DocF scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Color: Deep Copper

    Comment: From 1966 some barrels of Ben Nevis have survived the time, this one is barrel-weighted, not over-complex, can be according to the age drink like water. 91 points.
    • Nose
      Cooked pears plus cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla sauce on top, some dill, incense sticks, mustard seeds. Orange peel.
    • Taste
      As expected round, not a bit thin, sweet, more dill, orange syrup, boiled pears, cinnamon, bittersweet chocolate, ricola, old spices. Mon Cheri. You can chew on it almost forever.
    • Finish
      Mon Cheri, pear brandy, cinnamon, latte. Expected to be long, unexpectedly neither dry nor too bitter.

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 170 Euro in May, 2013. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state an exotic fruity profile with some nice OBFs.  Very, very quaffable...

  3. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    N: exotic fruits, rum, (white)wood, spicy - cinnamon, coconuts, smoky, roses and lavender
    T: sweet, cognac, wood, wood smoke (Lapsang tee), dry and forest fruits

    F: long, sweet and some grapes

    Singlemalt or Singlegrain?
    The label says single malt.
    I`ve tried it and type on single grain or single blend with a huge amount of grain.
