Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 TSCL

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.00 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Owned and operated by Nikka Whisky since 1989, 30% of the Ben Nevis new-make spirit is sent directly to Japan every year to be used in Nikka’s various blends.
    N: Oiled & waxy tropical fruits, tinned peaches, dried elderflowers,…. and somewhat reminiscent of older Linkwood bottlings.
    T: Similar to the nose before becoming a touch ashy. It’s a fruity malt but dries quickly, becoming a little chalky dry with hazelnuts.
    F: Short finish on oak, accompanied by oily-herbal barley and a dash of lime.
    C: The finish dries up somewhat, but overall, it’s rather a good Ben Nevis - competent, interesting, odd and tasty.
