  2. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A Ben Nevis very complex (too?) That did not totally convinced me .... I remain on my hunger. It's still a good whisky all the same.
    • Nose
      Powerful, or mix flowers and fruits (Citrus, banana with a hint of mint ...) The 2nd nose adds coconut and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Explosion in the mouth, we feel the strong presence of alcohol (edit: even if well integrated). Very complex one can feel oak wood and mint mix in a fat and oily dance.
    • Finish
      Dried fruits, vanilla then comes the fresh grass and the wood ....

  5. Kensay scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    2020 has passed under a galaxy of great Ben Nevis 1996 releases, but this release is hardly one of the best Nevis we have tried
    • Nose
      86 86
      lacquered fruits, wax bloom and pollen, green apricots, wormwood
    • Taste
      86 86
      bitter pith of apricot pits, some wormwood and unripe fruits
    • Finish
      85 85
      sour lemon and spices, medium

  10. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Fresh nose mixing pastry and floral, cherry plum, a hint of white glue, straw, honey, candle. We find the straw in the mouth, with a veil of smoke that did not appear on the nose. Alcohol is well integrated and feels nice, covering. Long finish on honey and yellow fruits (peach). A very nice dram, which has things to say, fresh and complex.
