Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1997 G&C

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.33 points

  1. vredensever scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is dense, mineral, sweetish, resinous: earth, dust, stones, humus, foliage, straw, grain, sand cake, a bit of honey and lemon.

    The taste is sharp: pepper, vanilla, pastries, oak, bark, dark honey and date syrup, notes of foliage, humus and resin, light bitterness.

    The finish is long, oak, slightly sweet with resinous shades, biscuits and porridge.

    Conclusion. Cool BenNevis. Dense, sharp, in a good "dirty", with the presence of earthy and resinous notes. In my taste. Water is not added.

    An excellent mole, crystal, sunny, very deep and saturated, but at the same time powerful and assertive.

      Open, dry, first nose - freshly cut wood; oil-vegetable shades, wax, flower-mineral notes, lemon zest, lollipops.
    • Taste
      Powerful, rich, woody-grain, a bit bitter and tart of the young bark, wax, honey, peppery wave, sweet confectionery notes, vanilla, cream, industrial-mineral shades develop.

      Refreshing, spicy, vanilla, oak, grain, citrus-lemonade notes, lollipops, lemon pepper, mineral-metallic acid.
