Product Description

A wonderful single cask bottle of Ben Nevis that seems much older than its 10 years and tastes more like a dark sherry or madeira cask aged malt than white port. Nose: Raisin loaf, fig rolls, honey, dried apricot, waxy marmalade, blood orange, chocolate toffee wafers, treacle, ginger, brandy snaps. Palate: Dark treacle tart, old fashioned ginger cake, brandy snaps, dark marmalade, waxy, thick and dry mouthfeel leading onto honey roasted nuts, fig jam and stock syrup. Finish:Dry roasted nuts, honey on well done brown toast, fig marmalade, ginger, mocha, dried apricots, treacle tart, brandy snaps. Rare to find a 100% white port cask aged whisky but on this evidence i will try and seek out more, one of my whiskies of the year in 2015 when i tried this and easily one of the most impressive Ben Nevis releases out there (and beautifully packaged in a wood box to boot)
