Reviews for McDonald's Celebrated Traditional Ben Nevis
J.W., WATCH YOUR BACK
Reportedly, the distillery that makes this are the last remaining distiller to use brewers yeast. As whisky is 'concentrated beer' this should come as no surprise to those who know it is a way of maintaining flavour-profile whilst avoiding 'cluttered' and unpredictable fruity esters. I am an old Baker-by-trade and understand the mutations of various fermentations including sour-dough culture. I digress. Lovely to note the natural "lemon-water" colour of this whisky and the generous proportion of of older material added to the mix. Well done!

Best whiskey I've had
Best whiskey I've had (from a non whiskey lover) really does taste as it says on the bottle, salty cream... so good.

Absolute quality in a bottle made in a very traditional way
A wonderfully peaty whisky which is full of flavour. I went to the distillery this year and tried it on their tour and fell in love with it. Absolute quality in a bottle made in a very traditional way.

Peated Real Whisky As It Used To Be
Just re-sampled another "long"- not squat (older version?) , but corked, not screwcap, bottle of this fine distillation. (They do vary in colour!) Sure they muck around with various casks and length of maturing... but the bottom line is - quality!

Very good Ye-Olde -Time Scotch
What is it - "McDonalds" or "MacDonalds"? Even the label on the bottle is ambiguous as at the top the surname doesn't match the signature! Getting to the fluid... Ok, this is a definite improvement on earlier bottlings which I believe is across the board for this distillery; this drop is very good and just nicely peated with a smoothness and mellowness defying its approx. 5-13 age.

One dimensional
TOO...... PEATY ! [read: sooty] In my opinion for a non Island / Islay Scotch, heck, even most of them are moderate in this department. Maybe in 1882 this was considered the norm (from what was available) but today I would say, 20% of whisky imbibers would find this satisfying. Some pleasant malty overtones, but other than that I find it good for blending with diametrically opposed Whisky!

Needs consistency of quality casks.
It is NOT a re - creation of the founder 'LONG JOHN' MacDonald - rather possibly a version of his son - Donald MacDonald - as his father died in 1856 . Anyway, not a bad drop
