Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 MBl

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    So today I try this again after 3 years. This is the second of two bottles I had bought and just opened in the last week. In 2016 I scored 88 points for this with the palate being the best followed by finish as a close second. Let's see how it tastes.

    The nose starts with tropical fruits, then damp earthy notes. Perhaps some white chocolate, then a faint whiff of smoke, and umami arrives.

    The palate carries on with umami, tart pineapple jubes, smoke, bitterness of dark chocolate, some oak.

    The finish carries on with the lingering dark chocolate bitterness, faint oak, candied ginger, and faintness of umami.
