Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1965 GM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.93 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2012]  I had this dram during an "Old CC" tasting at Bonn.

    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 92,5.  My notes state a well balanced profile of sweet flavours (vanilla, honey), dark chocolate and spicy aromas.  Very quaffable...

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Tasted at the WF 2016 at the stand of Whisky Spirits in Frankfurt where they had a lot of 1965 vintages. Quirky Ben Nevis from the 1960's.
    • Nose
      Interesting nose of candy stick, cut grass and caramel. Some perfume assocations. Fresh vanilla and honey. Cedar wood. This is very wacky, but fun!
    • Taste
      A bit weak. Lots of dark chocolate. Coffee beans as well. Later on some citrussy notes of grapes and lemon. Sweet barley. Cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Not that long. Spices of black pepper and nutmeg. Liquorice at the end.

  3. Slick scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Quite pleasant all around, good finish. I only wish it was a bit more powerful on the palate although it's 40%.
    This would make a great summer drink after a long hot day out.

  4. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "A release of 1965 vintage Ben Nevis by Gordon & Macphail for their

    Connoisseurs Choice range, around the end of its late 70s/early 80s

    closure."
