Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 ElD
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.40 points
- 22 + 22 + 23 + 22 = 89 ~ WT blind tasting
- Dark fruits and crisp sherry on the nose, which translates to the palate bit there is a hint of sulphur in the mix but its ok
There is also a nice peat angle on this and I think the balance is good,
- 21 22 21 21 85
- Salty, slightly varnish, very calm
Salty, pepper, oily and spicy
Medium length finish, spices and pepper, ripe olives
From the 20 summer release, I expected more in flavor and development
- N 21 P 22 F 22 B22
N: Dreamy creamy sherry and sweet coconut hessian. Pancake wraps with water. Works superbly at strength.
T: A sherry cask that allows the spirit to talk.
F: [no notes]
C: A treat for the Nevis faithful.
