A brill Ben Nevis single malt, aged in a refill butt cask for 21 years. It was distilled by the distillery by the eponymous mountain in April 1996 and set aside to mature until June 2017, when Douglas Laing came along and bottled it for the Old Particular range. 583 bottles were produced.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fruit Pastilles, vegetal hints of banana and mint, peanut brittle.

Palate: Dark fruits develop on the palate. Continued nutty malt and rounded toffee notes.

Finish: Very subtly smoky. Sichuan pepper and tobacco.

Ben Nevis 21 Year Old 1996 (cask 11767) - Old Particular (Douglas Laing) Reviews

A nice harmony between sweet and spice

The Chaps' tasting notes are very accurate to me. This whiskey is sweet on the nose, caramelized sugar poured over banana, maple syrup, tan leather - the floral notes are very light.

On the palate the smoke is subtle indeed, very slowly building to a strong finish (not Islay but still enough to satisfy). The fruits and toffee are wonderfully mixed with the spice, pepper, and the tobacco came through light for me.

Overall, an exceptionally nice dram, complex enough on the nose, palate, and finish to make it worth the price point. Please don't buy any though, I want some bottles left for me when I finish mine.

Afterthought - don't add water. Let it breathe for a good half hour, it develops wonderfully.
