Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 KiW

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.82 points

  1. Heerst scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Fruity, oily, and floral. Exactly what I expect from a '96 Ben Nevis and I'm glad I picked up a bottle.

    A bold nose of stewed fruits and fresh flowers. Candied lemon and apricot marmalade. Cruesli and coconut shavings. Floral notes, butter, and new leather.
    On the palate, oils and sugars kick in. Marmalade again. Fruit syrup, canned peaches. Vanilla and warm pastry.

    At a relatively gentle strength of 46,7% ABV, this is dangerously drinkable. No water needed. The finish is oily and smooth, with a slight mineral tinge.

  2. WillemvdK scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    What stands out most are the notes of mocha and fudge on top of the vanilla and slightly burnt toast. Very light whisky but definitely not fruity. (Not a bad thing though, not at all)
