Ben Nevis 10 Year Old

Ben Nevis 10 Bottling Note

1996 saw the release of the entry level Ben Nevis single malt, this 10 year old exudes some beautiful coffee, chocolate and toffeed peat notes, a firm representative of the Western Highland style.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fresh and quite dry. A supple greenness with soft leafy notes with a rich fruitiness. Hints of orange and Seville marmalade with a light vinous character and nutty undertones.

Palate: Gentle dryness. Toffee. Looming omnipresent are solid peat notes with a bitter sweetness.

Finish: Silken, toffee and caramel notes balanced with a touch of mochaccino and dark chocolate on the tail.

User Reviews of the Ben Nevis 10 Year Old


Slightly harsh, although, a very nice full bodied rich smoky dram. Congrats on being bottled at of the remaining few with any semblance of age in a reasonable price category ($A100).

Amazing whiskey, such flavour with a taste so wet, its like rolling around in an otter's pocket

Icing sugar, coffee peat, and a bit too much dry old oak.

Not bad. Barley sugar nose, light peat. In the mouth icing sugar with robust peat, initially a strong coffee notes which is nice but isn't consisten and quickly fades with air contact. The taste of old oak casks is interesting but eventually turns to an ongoing dryness which isn't ideal. Nice enough but it all seems to end on the wrong side of dryness for me.. and those wooden casks taste a little bit old.....

Очень, очень хороший виски, насыщенный, мощный и вкус и аромат: ржаной хлеб с семенами подсолнуха + капля торфа = японская Nikka сделала хороший Шотландский виски. 28.5 фунтов в Великобритании и ... 880 грн. в Украине, при средней зарплате 2000 - 3000 грн. и это очень и очень печально леди и джентльмены, а после военной агрессии России на Украину и девальвации гривны всё ещё печальнее...

Our team enjoyed this whiskey before starting ben nevis on the three peaks challenge, we all enjoy "peaty" whiskeys such as laphroaig and taliskers but i have cetainly made space on my shelf for this one!

Excellent Malt

Discovered this way back when I first discovered Scotch at the Scotch Whisky experience in Edinburgh. It was an instant favourite (along with the very different Laphroaig) and I have enjoyed it ever since.

This has been too hard to get for quite a while. When I visited the distillery, even they didn't have any! Strange indeed. It's a BIG whisky - spicy and perfumy - with a lovely smokey orangey chocolatey finish. May sound weird ... but it works for me. 46% too!

A must have in a whisky cabinet!

Good, trustworthy friend on my shelf:) Clean, strong sherry, intense aroma. on the palate oily but still very refreshing. Chocolate orange finish. Really good fellow, especially for this price:)
