Whisky reviews for Ben Nevis 1970 SMS

4 users have left 4 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.45 points.

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    On the palate I can't really find the balance that was so prevalent on the nose. That shaves more than a few points of the initial score.
    • Nose
      The grain influence is certainly recognizable. There's similarities to the older grains, such as this Invergordon, but it has more to offer. Hints of bitter orange peel and oak, but then there's creamy butter and a whiff of vanilla custard, followed by cedar wood and tobacco leaves. Well-rounded stuff.
    • Taste
      Lemon zest, vanilla and orange juice, but also spicy oak, resin and coconut shavings. A touch floral and slightly bitter.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices and bitterness.
