Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 ED
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.28 points
- dark fruits, bananas, chocolate, and no sulphur with a long finish. Me gusta
Very sweet sherry nose, smells super round, soft, old, dignified. Tropical fruits, especially bananas, mixed with raisins and cane sugar. Chocolate, fermented mango and overripe pineapple. Super, complex, stunning!
Furthermore super soft and creamy, the alcohol is perfectly integrated and embedded. The tropical fruits and light refill sherry aromas continue to dominate. Cinnamon, chocolate, some leather and then again overripe pineapple and banana.
Continuing the same pattern, still fantastic. The taste stays in the mouth for a long time, now with a slight bitter note. Simply to enjoy.
A dreamlike paint that is convincing all along the line. Wonderful flavors, perfect strength, great complexity.
N-94, T-92, F-92 totally very great 93 points
- Tried only 50ml.
Nose - heavy overripe red fruits and oak presence,
Palate - fruitiness from nose continues on the taste, oak also presented.
Finish - dry, oaky
- Really nice whisky, good balance of oak and distillate.
First impression is mindblowong, fruity and laced with sherry. A bunch of ripe bananas, then its banana dipped in chocolate, followed up by other tropical fruits such as papaya and mango.
With time it becomes stewed apples, apple bread with honey and cinnamon.
Oh yeah, stewed apples and pears, chocolate drops with rum raisin fudge. It's thick and coats the mouth, wood spice and plenty of dried orange.
Finish is medium to long, slightly oaky but with plenty if chocolate lingering.
