Ben Nevis 8 year old 2015 The Rose & Crown

James Eadie, Small Batch, First Fill Bourbon Hogshead & Refill Butt

A heavyweight of the Highlands well-known to enlightened enthusiasts, Ben Nevis produces robust, malty, and fruity whiskies from another time. This bottling offers a particularly hefty vision of the distillery: lots of substance and a pronounced waxy character (honeycomb). This density is perfectly counterbalanced by succulent notes of fruit crumble and Nordic pastries with cinnamon. Firm yet warm.

The Distillery

Founded in 1825 by the famous "Long John" Macdonald, the Ben Nevis distillery is a Scottish wonder which hasn’t received the recognition it deserves and which remains very old fashioned in its production methods (it is one of the last distilleries to use brewery yeast) as well as in the style of its products. With traditional pot stills and a continuous distillation column, it produces grain whiskies, malt whiskies and blended whiskies. The strong character of the malt distillate, rustic like brandy and with a grain flavour, lends itself particularly well to long maturation, especially in ex-sherry casks. Ben Nevis has been part of the Japanese Nikka Group since 1989.
