Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 PST

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.69 points

  1. DerDennis! scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Ordinary Ben Nevis, but I find him not very complex and, despite 44.4%, surprisingly sharp.
    The herb notes dominate, fruit notes are almost completely submerged.
    The finish is then a bit ... boring.
    • Nose
      87 87
      strong, sweet, fresh Ben-Nevis herbal notes, light fruits, pineapple, soap, nutmeg, white pepper, grated lemon zest, blossom honey, cucumber water
    • Taste
      86 86
      Herbs, strong spicy, peppery, spicy, tannins, light fruit sweetness, nutty, espresso, slightly bitter
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium long, very slightly bitter, tannins, herbs ... goes in the direction of unsweetened peppermint tea
