Blind Tasting Competition Day 4: Ben Nevis 18, 1995-2013, 51.8% – The Whisky Agency

After yesterday’s disappointing zero-pointer I had to put in another semi-random guess. I waited with today’s distillery selection until after the results, but since I tasted the whisky on Monday I wasn’t overly sharp on specifics anymore. Apparently, I wasn’t … Continue reading

Ben Nevis 16yo, 1997-2013, 55% – Abbey Whisky’s Rare Casks

I’m not sure what it is with Ben Nevis. I haven’t tasted many of them and I only ‘almost visited’ the distillery. The ones I’ve tasted weren’t even all good with some truly horrendous whisky in the mix. Still, I … Continue reading

Ben Nevis 25yo, 1984, Cask 98/35/12, 54%
