Best whiskies in the world.

 

Ben Nevis

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.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

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!
