Ben Nevis 17 Year Old Bottling Note

Single cask Ben Nevis? Oh, go on then! This bold, beautiful Ben Nevis single malt Scotch whisky was drawn from a single refill bourbon hogshead which was home to the whisky for 17 years, from October 1996 to June 2014. It's been bottled at cask strength (a hearty 51.4% ABV) for our Single Cask Series. You'll definitely want to get your hands on one, as it's a properly delicious dram of Highland whisky.

"the malt-sugar mix is definitely something you have to take note of... Some good oak involvement, too, insuring a touch of complexity and even, for the odd moment or two, class."

- Jim Murray (87.5 Points)

Just 34 bottles were produced.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: It opens with decadent crème caramel and sponge cake, before moving on to fragrant potpourri (with a good helping of lavender oil). Leave it in the glass and it develops fruity esters in the shape of wild berry ice-cream and flamed orange peel.

Palate: Coffee beans and light hops, balanced by sweet malt, Parma Violets and red apple skin. Earthy, perhaps almost vegetal at its core.

Finish: Long with classic bourbon-barrel-char and a touch of fresh thyme.

Overall: Well layered and intriguing, it's a unique Ben Nevis for sure.
