Ben Nevis 10 Year Old Bottling Note

This 10 year old Ben Nevis single malt 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.

Ben Nevis 10 Year Old Reviews

One to remember

Tried this at a whisky bar and could not forget it. Ordered me a bottle online. For the age and price this is very very good! Very distinctive taste.

Excellent old school

Pour a few nobblers in a snifter glass and let it breathe for 3x its age (30 mins in this case) and you will be rewarded with a tipple that is 3x better than if you imbibed straight away.
This Whisky is totally different to any mainstream example in its profile, and as a result needs to be treated differently.

Classy dessert whiskey

Classy dessert whiskey, not very complex but very pleasant dark flavor profile. Value for the money is just wow!

BIG BEN

Great to see they have toned down the E150 and chill filtration a lot in this new revamped version of Ben Nevis. As for the whisky itself it is somewhere between a Springbank 10 and a bourbon cask Benromach. Quite sweet and thick to start then comes a blast of citrus followed by a BIG resinous mineral salty finish, which lasts for a long time turning in a Benylin cough medicine taste. Really impressed as to how much character this whisky has and the way it all works together from start to finish. Amazing value for money providing you like this style of whisky, it isn't a smooth and easy whisky for sure.

Highland favorite

One of my absolute favorites!! Love the salted caramel hints, then salted lemons. Then pepper. Slightly sooty. And really very fresh! Always in my cabinet.

Dare You To Find Better for £30 !

I don't get any of the tasting notes above. I get a sweetness, a very pleasant fruitiness...particularly strawberries, bizarrely. There's an acceptable saltiness in there somewhere. It's quite nice to the taste.
100% zero peat...thankfully !
For £30 a bottle, you'll be doing well to do better !

Good Stuff

Smooth and sweet, slight hint of vanilla and a little bit creamy. Very nice on the pallet.

Don't do that at my favourite distillery!!!

It has an artificial sweet taste that covers the tongue for minutes. (Sulphur?) All the typical Ben Nevis aromas and some of the taste are there but it's the first one I can't recommend, because all seems to be hidden behind a sweet wall. I had about 15 different types of Ben Nevis before and liked them all a lot better!
Here I miss the salty peppery experience that is so adorable.

One of the best 10yo malts for me. Highly recommend

Ben Nevis but not quite scaling the heights

I was always a fan of Ben Nevis 10, so I was a little concerned when I saw this new presentation - and I was right to be. Firstly - a small point - I don't like the coloured bottle. When I poured a dram, it looked much paler and the nose didn't entice. Despite the 46%, it seemed thin and weak and not at all like the robust whisky I have reviewed previously. I did have the bottle open for several hours before sampling so it did have time to 'breathe'. There are merely my first impressions. Perhaps, in time, when I go back, it will taste better but, at the moment, I can only recommend that if you see the old version, grab while you can.
