Whisky reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 DR

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 83.50 points.

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Not a bad enough interesting mole, not quite managed to curb a serious fortress - skips some spirituousness and stiffness in the fragrance, as well as an excessively powerful wave of pepper in taste (as a derivative of the fortress) not completely balanced by other components, but in general there is something to pay attention to .
    • Nose
      Wet grain, malt, raw wood, oatmeal, light mineral tones, lemon slice in the cooled tea, then dried fruits start starting from the background - dried apricots, raisins, a little prunes.
    • Taste
      Red pepper, cream, condensed milk, rich oak bitterness, dried fruits, dried apples, ginger, burnt caramel.
    • Finish
      Lemon zest, orange peel, ginger, fondant, toffee, long, slightly astringent.
