Ben Nevis 31yo 1984 Bottling Note

A limited edition bottling of some incredibly well-aged Ben Nevis single malt Scotch whisky, released as part of La Maison du Whisky's 60th Anniversary celebrations. Distilled in 1984, this whisky was initially matured in first-fill bourbon casks for 13 years, before being transferred over to Oloroso Sherry casks for a further 18 years. It was bottled in 2016 at 56.4% ABV.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Fine, distinguished. The nose opens with a subtle and exquisite fragrance of roses. As delicate as ever, it slowly becomes praline-scented, with roasted (coffee) and herbaceous (cut hay, ivy) notes. As it breathes, honeysuckle and hyacinth accentuate its deliciously heady nature. Spices and chillies gradually coat the aromatic palette.

Palate: Rich, nuanced. Boasting the same complexity as the nose, it unfurls with mingled notes of honey (lavender), praline, cocoa, flowers (lily, iris) and fruit (Mirabelle plum, pear). The mid-palate is remarkably spicy (star anise, saffron). Its incredibly refined graininess is reminiscent of rice cakes. Then it moves into the shade of some lime blossom that exudes its gorgeous fragrance on a balmy June night.

Finish: Long, balanced. Characterised by notes of violet-infused liquorice candy, it is wonderfully mouth-watering. Rich and roasted, it offers rum baba-like flavours. The retro-nasal olfaction is a thirst-quenching infusion of camomile and vervain. The empty glass is a faithful mirror of the elegance of the initial nose.
