Ben Nevis 10 Year Old is a whisky that punches well above its price point. A full-bodied dram with notes of tropical fruit, dark chocolate, coffee and a whiff of peat.

    Not bad, has depth. Tastes best straight up.

    This whisky isn’t the best but the price, it’s excellent. Great taste, full of flavour and fairly smooth. Definitely better than any supermarket equivalent you’d find.

    Fully deserving of its many accolades. A beautiful dram!

    Aside from the increasingly daft tasting notes of today's whisky reviewers (" lots of tropical fruit, and hints of coffee and dark chocolate" - sorry, but no.) this is a nice semi-smokey, full flavoured and smooth malt which is a good middle ground before reaching the peaty stuff.

    Lots of tropical fruit for sure. I get mango/papaya and pineapple. A hint of smoke. Nice fruitiness and good oaky/tannic influence. Really pretty nice for the price and age.

    Wonderful whisky. Really, REALLY need to catch a breath, and quite a long one. My experience is at least 15 minutes. Then the initially boring whisky just blooms with fruity and flowery tastes.

    Not bad....but a bit too dry and wood dominated for me.

    Took the distillery tour a week ago and after sampling I bought a bottle. Good scotch for the price.

    Bought a bottle last week after a tour of the distillery. Very impressive whisky with a distinctive flavour.

    The best original bottling single malt under 18 years I've had. Double the price, and it would still be a bargain.

    Purchased at the Ben Nevis distillery whilst visiting the west coast on a touring holiday, my first attempt at a single malt, loved it, I now need another bottle just hope I can find it down south.

    Wow! great whiskey, great price. I'm tasting coffee, vanilla and yes agree with the sherry

  • Manu 23 March 2011

    Seeing that it's bottled at 46% ABV, is it non-chill-filtered?

  • FM 2 March 2011

    Tried this at the whisky experience in edinburg a couple of years ago and loved it, although I couldn't remember why. Bought a bottle from the WE a couple of months ago and although I was a bit underwhelmed at first, it's really grown on me. I think now it's mixed with the air in the bottle a bit, the flavour's developed a bit. Has a very full flavour and a great mouth feel. Not sure if it's been matured in a sherry cask but certainly getting some of that coming through.

    Fantastic stuff and strangely neglected by the 'experts'
