Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 ElD

- Nice creamy and oily Ben Nevis, great subtle dram yet complex.
Coffee notes, sweet chocolate, tiramisu and indeed berries!
- TASTING NOTE LMDW
This Ben Nevis 20 years 1996 was 1531 is marked by classicism and does not derogate from the reputation of this distillery of the Highlands: rich, complex and subtly spicy. Located just steps from the Lochy River on the outskirts of Fort William, Ben Nevis is still one of the last distilleries to use brewer's yeast and allows connoisseurs of us to recognize this precious juice. This single malt was distilled in 1996 and fully aged in Oloroso Sherry casks conferring on it an amber hue and notes of dried fruits, figs and sweet spices.
Nose: greedy. Prunes, fig with rum. Cocoa and coffee notes.
Palate: rich. Notes of dark chocolate, clove, dried fruits and vanilla.
Finale: long on tiramisu and berry fruits full of water.
