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
- 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.
- 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.
