Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 DD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.41 points

  1. Malinois scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    That beatiful sweet orange style nose is clearly there, which is the best part of the dram! The pallet begins on the same fruit side but the pepper grows and takes quite a bite out of the fruit sensation. The pepper is not chili/hot style. The finish is short on the fruit and some oak traces remain. A good dram, but a pity of the pepper!

    (Whisky Passion).
    • Nose
      The nose is full of freshness, it delivers its notes of sweet butter. I find mango, green banana, some acidity, papaya. Honey mixes with vanilla in a melted way. Soft caramel.
    • Taste
      Dynamic, full of honey, vanilla. Pepper appears to give a little more pep. Sour fruit completes the work. At the very end of the mouth come back some fruits, mango pulp.
    • Finish
      Slightly waxy, long, she does not lose her energy. Green apples.

  3. MrRancho scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    It's OK.
    • Nose
      Outer flowery and straw. Toffee behind it very easily.
    • Taste
      Toffee, sweet, flowery, a little salt.
    • Finish
      Medium. Something bitter and salty.
