Ben Nevis 10 Year Old is a superb introduction to the distillery's style. Full-bodied with a whiff of peat, lots of tropical fruit, and hints of coffee and dark chocolate, this is a great example of western Highland whisky.Tasting Notes (1)

This has got to be one of the best 10yo core releases alongside Springbank 10yo and The Talisker 10yo. I rate it alongside the much loved but long gone Balvenie 10 yo. It is very well made, precise and full of distillery character. Why is it considerably more expensive than the other 10 year olds? Perhaps there is a good proportion of older whisky in there. Good stuff.
Sooo... This got into my TOP3 list I guess (together with Clynelish and Uig). Not because I could not stop drinking this whisky, it is occasional dram, but because for me this has the most recognizable distillery character. Basically I have never tasted so much character in any other whisky (not counting Islay :D) Soo many light herbs, similar of what you taste in Oban (dandelions) just at the moment you swallow... but this is powered up also by nettle and tangerine notes. It's this type of whisky that if someone give you a blind test you would just know it's Ben Nevis 10. I would love to taste this in 18y version, still 10y is quite light, and not too complex which is probably the reason why it's not so addictive after all. Of course it's top quality, smooth and little peppery, but the less you have in the bottle the less peppery it becomes, like Deanston and many 46ABV bottles. It's a marriage for life I guess... Well... Why not...
Picked this up at the distillery last October and have recently opened the bottle. A very, very well balanced single malt. Slightly oily, with a hint of fruit that goes into a bone dry finish of high cocoa chocolate and faint coffee. Excellent whisky, none better at 10 years old, and punches above it's age at price point.
You will be hard pressed to get another 10yo as complex as this.Arrives all peaches and spice,develops into dark choc and then glides into an oily coffee finish.A spellbinding dram
Took me a couple of drams to get accustomed to the flavour profile, but this is really decent stuff. A very unique whisky, strong lemon, slightly earthy and cereal notes. Doesn’t take much water so literally just a drop or two to open things up. This review is for the 2021 bottling which has a changed label stating non chill filtered & natural colour, they seem to have also changed the water of life inside. Should you buy a bottle?… yes
