Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 ED

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.69 points

  1. STL scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      88 88
      Pleasant and spicy nose. The sherry cask is not particularly marked (on the contrary!)
    • Taste
      86 86
      Very aggressive mouth (this move) and changeable. It goes all over the place (top for my taste). The water tempers it and does it a lot of good (it reveals the dried fruits and allows the sherry to express itself). Alcohol remains unbalanced.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The final was no less on the move. It ends in nuance and is more pleasant

  2. Tastingbros scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior
