Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 SBT

  1. LDB scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Delicious!
    Is it worth the extra charge to the (now rare) standard 10yo? Ultimately, everyone has to know that for themselves. The good batches of the 10 year old from ~ 2017 were in a class of their own, I think. But here and now you would have to dig much deeper into your pocket than for this drinkable one.
    • Nose

      Spicy elderflower, fairly tightly interwoven heavy honey aromas.
    • Taste
      87 87
      There is the Nevis elderflower syrup note that delights the palate with an intense and slightly oily taste - just not that much more, a bit like a grape sugar, intense and quickly fading again, unless you have more in your mouth. In any case, the alcohol is pleasantly well integrated.
    • Finish

      The delicious mouthfeel is not followed very quickly, not even after chewing it. With larger sips, the spice stays present for longer, with old lemon and shortbread.

    • Nose
      86 86
      Creamy vanilla notes, relatively heavy and sweet-spicy aromas, plus a little fresh green apple. Slightly floral and refreshing next to caramelized wood. Slightly sweet and tart hazelnuts and light citrus notes are hidden in the background.

      Not too complex and profound, yet somewhat heavy aromas with pleasant spiciness.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Fresh sweet apple. Indeed elderflower syrup! In addition, pleasantly spicy wood, wonderfully sweet citrus notes, a little floral, lemon sweets, very light vanilla notes, light, juicy fruits.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Very pleasantly spicy, slightly sweet. The elderberry note fades but is still noticeable. There are very light and tart citrus notes and light, light wood.

    Very tasty and tasty, a successful filling. You can do it.
    • Nose
      85 85
      sweet; fruity-fresh fruit basket; a lot of honey; slightly floral notes; fresh oak; with a little time in the glass, a light buttery note of dough appears; overall not too complex but tasty
    • Taste
      86 86
      it lies oily and sweet in the mouth; bright yellow fruits; Honey; some caramel; if you let it stay longer in the mouth, a slightly tart woody note and some white pepper emerge
    • Finish
      85 85
      it fades relatively quickly and the aromas remain relatively subtle; spicy; light fruit; Honey; delicate bitter-tart wood note
