Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 HCL

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Smells like a watered down Ben Nevis, has the essence for sure. However it tastes like hard tack in MRE's and also has a finishing of wet then sun dried stale cardboard.
