Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1986 DD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.75 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A very enjoyable Ben Nevis. Nose even beter than the (too?) punchy palate.
    • Nose
      Lots of tropical fruit to start with. Pineapple, papaya and lychees. Green apples as well. Some grassy notes. Polished oak.
    • Taste
      Sweet but also quite punchy. Strawberries and goosberries. Cane sugar. Slightly peppery. Cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Liquorice. Vanilla. Becomes salty at the end.

  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A good fruity profile, very well done, nice. But who does not leave the beaten track; I have the impression of having drunk many times this kind of whisky.
    • Nose
      A fruity explosion invades the nose. Apple, citrus, a bit of vanilla. A very fresh, springtime nose. The sweetness of the fruits settles and persists.
    • Taste
      A tart entry, very much on citrus fruits. A very faded profile that oscillates between sweet yellow fruits, citrus and green apple.
    • Finish
      Average. The citrus acidity continues, and a small astringency appears.
