Product Description

This is Batch 1 of the cask strength 10 year old, a whisky that has been matured in first fill Bourbon, Sherry and wine casks.  With doubt surrounding the continued bottling of the standard 10 year old (46%) this may be your best chance to get a bottle from this popular Highland distillery.

Tasting notes supplied by Charles Maclean:

Nose - A mild nose-feel in spite of it's strength; nose drying overall.  A big rich complex aroma, with a top-note which combines fresh and dried fruit (bruised apple, glace cherries, dried figs, dates).  An initial scent of fragrant aromatherapy oil in the middle of a base of planed hardwood.  A splash of water increases the last, introduces a trace of gingersnap biscuits and dries the aroma further.  Some butterscotch in the development.  

Taste -  A smooth texture and a slightly sweet taste, drying rapidly to a spicy finish, leaving a faint aftertaste of fondant.  It benefits from reduction with water, but the profile remains similar, with the addition of a trace of matchbox striker, and now the spice combines Sichuan pepper with powdered ginger. 

A lively and exotic expression of Ben Nevis.
