Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 BD

- A seemingly good barrel. Pleasant (especially on the nose) and easily accessible whisky.
The tasting for this review was a recently started sample.
Bright fruits; sweet (crumbly) cookie dough; Apple pie with raisins and almonds; then clearly apple (while cooking); light vanilla; briefly a small touch of pineapple
Slightly oily; Pepper sharpness; again fruit; again cookie dough Bourbon Hogshead reveals himself; mixed herbs; altogether a pleasant composition of the preceding smell
Medium; Fruitiness is recognizable; when you want to eat something walnut (walnut?). Overall, the finish is not exceptional
- He needs a lot of air and time for me. Very complex, both on the nose and on the palate. The finish is also nice and long.
With water it becomes much fruity and tamed, almost tasty ... altogether even better.
Cereals, hair spray, malt, a lot of honey, vanilla, nutmeg, white pepper, herbs, lemon balm, roasted almonds, cocoa powder, ginger, tropical, light fruits .... white gummy bears
sweet, light spicy, typical Ben Nevis herbal note, oatmeal cookies with a lot of honey, pepper, clear tannins, but not bitter, malty, vanilla, pineapple
long, pleasant barrel, herbs, cereals and honey, very subtle fruit note
