Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1997 TWC

  1. Sleinn nam Ffoh scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Fantastic Ben Nevis from the - I guess refill - Sherry Cask. Elegant sherry enjoyment that also leaves enough space for the character of the distillery.

    Very nice whisky. Complex, sherry barrel is definitely there, but not everything dominates.
    With water, the whisky smells better, but loses something in taste and finish.
    (really good whisky that you should grab. The whisky base point scale should not be used as a reference here)

      nice complex nose.
      Sherry. You can smell the certain age, no hints of young whiskys. On the contrary: complex, alcohol well integrated

      Oily, sweet, sherry prevails and then even more sweet.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Very spicy finish. Still cute. Now you notice some wood that is due to age.
