Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 SV
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.17 points
- Beautiful Nevis! A wonderful fruity-tropical nose, maybe even overshadows the branded (for me) creamy. Good fruit-tannin-creamy taste (strength is close to ideal) and a fairly long finish. 23-23-22.5-22.5
- Exceptional whisky imho.
Really great nose, with ripe Kiwis, Grapefruit and some hints of misty notes. Honey as well.
Sweet and fruity mouth, very creamy, some wood, but without any bitterness or dry notes.
Can‘t say what this whisky needs to be better, quite near at perfection. Need to try it again.
my winner for 2021 so far

- Great nose with kiwi and other tropical fruits. The highlight of the dram.
The tropical fruits are then a little less present in the mouth and finish. It gets dry easily.
Either way, another great 96 Ben Nevis.
