Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1998 Cl

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.68 points

  1. Opeth83 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A very nice ex-bourbon matured Ben Nevis, I really like Ben Nevis, it is a challenging malt but this one is really balanced no rough edges. One of the better selections from the new bottler Claxton.

  5. HammerHead scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: initially, when smelled neat, a slighty unpleasant note of vomit appears in the background. This disappears almost completely with a teaspoon of water and some extra time. Furthermore salty caramel chocolate and obvious vanilla and citrus notes.

    Taste: quite a sturdy and briny body with sultanas, lemon zest and ripe white fruits.

    Finish: medium length with again the saltiness, vanilla and citrus zest accompanied by some oak wood spicyness.

    A very nice dram except for the initial off note in the nose.
