Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1997 MMcK

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.50 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very nice typical Ben Nevis. 87/88.
    • Nose
      Toffee. Meaty as well, the typical 'dirty' Ben Nevis style. Malt, strawberry, apple, peach, vanilla and a bit of banana.
    • Taste
      Toffee, strawberry, cookie, vanilla, cherry, banana and orange. The meaty touch is more in the background now.
    • Finish
      Cappuccino candy, coffee, strawberry, banana and orange. 

  2. hartist scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A successful Ben Nevis without being exceptional, well in the tradition of this distillery.
    • Nose
      Bars of cereals, exotic fruits including bananas frécinettes a little vanilla, nuts wrapped in dark chocolate a bit bitter, candied oranges, herbaceous scents.
    • Taste
      Mouth slightly sweet. Ripe fruit, beautiful orange zest, robust spices, vegetal notes (green tea), very slight bitterness of coffee, hint of sea salt.
    • Finish
      Rather quite long, hot and spicy, with a touch of earthy smoke.
