TASTING NOTES – BEN NEVIS 7 yo 2013 – 2020 WILSON & MORGAN
Overall, the Ben Nevis 7 yo 2013 – 2020 Wilson & Morgan is a whisky consistent with the character of the distillery. Its young age prevents it from getting high points, but it offers moments of real pleasure thanks to a remarkable creaminess and the Panettone notes. Excellent value for your money.
