A very rare cask strength 10 Year Old from one of the worlds hidden gems, Ben Nevis
A very limited and exciting new release from Ben Nevis. This product is bottled at a cask strength of 62.4% and was matured in first fill Bourbon, Sherry and wine casks.
There is a delectable sweetness of Caramel and toffee on the nose with underlying notes of tropical fruits and vanilla. Choosing to add a touch of water brings out more intense flavours of orange peel and cinnamon.
Taste: Berries, green apple and star anise finished with hints of gingerbread spices and coffee. The wine cask is definitely shining through at this point. The delicate hint of peat balances perfectly with the sweetness and cask strength intensity to give this whisky an extra dimension than its 46% counterpart.
A truly special whisky and a great example of what Ben Nevis are producing at the moment. Extremely limited release.
A must try for any lover of cask strength whisky. You won't be disappointed.
