Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1992 CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.87 points

  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This one starts with some doubts, with this sour overripe fruity aroma. Along the way it disappears, more sweet notes, friendly but strong. Finally pretty pleasant.

      Fruity, a bit sour and overripe thing. Pretty strong alcohol. Apples, some lemon as well. Later on the overripe aspects disappear.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Pretty strong, pepper, fruity, apples, a bit of peach, sweet now, honey and vanilla.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still pretty much pepper and powerfull, still some peach, sweet, honey. Warming, pretty long finish.

  2. Willie JJ scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very enjoyable, especially if you are a Ben Nevis fan.
    • Nose
      Typical Ben Nevis, it has the cabbagey, feinty nose. There's a lot to like here too. Sour apples and barley sugar, slightly musty with a splash of vanilla. Sweeter with water.
    • Taste
      Bitter, ascerbic, flinty. Water softens it and makes it sweet and malty.
    • Finish
      Massively spicy with sweet tobacco. With water its still a bit hot and over-spiced, but this is good Ben Nevis.
