76/100 – Whisky Bible 2006
It seems this bottle was discontinued sometime between 2006 and 2009 because in my 2009 edition of the Whisky Bible it’s been replaced by a ‘blue label’ version and there’s now a 12yo version of this blend. As mentioned above, in 2006 my little bottle of Ben scores 76/100 in the bible, which is “average and usually pleasant though sometimes flawed”. Jim says of this blend “heavy duty stuff with a sweet finish” so obviously not worthy of many words.
The Dew of Ben Nevis is one of two blends produced by the Ben Nevis distillery, the other being Glencoe.
