Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 TWA

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.92 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nicely fruity and very easy malt, but there are better casks out there. A bit more subdued than the rest.

    From a sample.

  2. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Much different 1996 that I've had from Ben Nevis - not to detract from other 96's from this distillery. This is a very delicate and elegant whisky - old style.

      Apricots, faint pepper, an OBE component despite this being a new bottling, some orange zest, some licorice appearing with time, mild honey
