  1. PunxsutawneyPhil scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Awesome stuff. Overwhelming tropical fruit in smell and taste. Almost perfect balance of wood and spirit. Best Ben Nevis I ever drank.

    Tasted at the US NO-Nederland BYO meeting 2017-05-28

    This is excellent, profile wise and very appetising. A really lovely Ben Nevis from an excellent bourbon cask, great selection.
    • Nose
       Fruity, almost wine like, melted butter, juicy sultanas.
    • Taste
      Very light at first then becoming creamy with the classic Ben Nevis chocolate notes (milk). It is spicy with a slight bitterness but it works well with the spiciness.
    • Finish
      Medium length again with a slight creamy, winey finish.

  4. Medea scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Surprisingly without the usual Ben Nevis glue, sauerkraut notes.
    very soft and round, vanilla, caramel candy and finally really not a little fruity.

    Very successful Ben Nevis. Less round than angular with very active barrel and a great finish.
