Ben Nevis 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 8 The sweetness could be excessive, but it is saved by the stogie.
Ben Nevis 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00% 7 A well-balanced dram. Sherry signs it but not in an assertive way.
Ben Nevis Dew of the Ben 21 Years Old
Blended - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Somewhat lacking in complexity. For the drinker who wants an easily drinkable whisky with some maturity.
Blackadder Ben Nevis 1984 Raw Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.20% 7 Extraordinarily red colour. The sweetness is almost overwhelming. The ultimate dessert whisky.
Cadenhead's Ben Nevis 1986, 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.90% 7 Hard to guess at the high alcohol strength from the nose. Not the usual big, oily Ben Nevis character. A pleasant fruitiness keeps the sweet notes dominant.
Dewar Rattray Ben Nevis 1992 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20% 7 I find it a little grubby.
Glencoe 8 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.00% 7 That simple one-two of sweetness and dryness is not especially complex, but the flavours are delicious. Very wholesome and appetising.
Glenkeir Treasures Ben Nevis 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A slightly uneasy balance between cereal, fruit and oak. Do not water.
Hart Brothers Ben Nevis 35 Years Old, Sherry Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.10% 7 The best Ben Nevis I have tasted.
Old & Rare Platinum Ben Nevis
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00% 7 Just about holds its own against the effects of excessive age. On the cusp!
