Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 MBl

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.33 points

  1. vredensever scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Aroma sweetish: tropical fruits (mango, papaya, bananas), sugar syrup, marmalade and candied fruits, lollipops, notes of coffee and biscuits. The taste is sweet with a touch of minerality: sugar candies, biscuits, candied fruit, a tree with fresh resin, at the end a light grassy bitterness. Aftertaste: slightly astringent oak, fading sweetness (baking, biquwits and candies), light bitterness. Conclusion . Very good, smooth, sweet whisky. Rating: 87 (n22t22f21b22).

    That's a real fruit magic!
    • Nose
      sweetish, slightly sourish; for not overripe fruits, especially pear
    • Taste
      still fruits, some honey-like background
    • Finish
      especially papaya, but also banana and the other tropical fruits, some vanilla
