Whisky reviews for Ben Nevis 1998 THLC

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.00 points.

  1. Totoro scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A nosing rather than a drinking whisky. Rarely had such a contrast between nose and palate.

      Quite peaty for a Ben Nevis! Ashy, smoky, charred... Barbecued meats, animal fat / grease, stone fruits, herbal oak, fruit-flavored shish-a tobacco . Extremely fragrant and present.

      Pretty oaky... but also pretty okay. However, the texture is thinner than I would've ideally liked. Overstewed tea, bitter orange, caramel... Seems pretty generic for a BN. Where's the exuberant fruitiness and the mineral, industrial aspect?

      Smoky. Otherwise, the oak dominates, with a lot of bitter tannins that push out any other flavor that might've showed.
