Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1996 VM

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.94 points

  1. dougaf scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Ben Nevis is such an under appreciated malt. The only to use exclusively brewers yeast, and who ships the majority of its product over to Japan for blending. There are so many of the 1996’s out on the independent bottler scene these days, and are generally a great buy. A good first fill hoggie is becoming a rare treat these days, so let’s see what we have..
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sun dried peaches, leather, apple skins, brown sugar, burnt butter
    • Taste

      Another good quality sherry cask. No sulphur to be found. Chocolate, apples, white fruit, dates, walnuts.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Apple skins, under ripe oranges, tobacco, buffalo cream.

      Long finish, with a slight bitterness.
