Introducing a stunning Ben Nevis from the limited edition Authors Series featuring products selected from rare single casks. This single malt whisky is limited to 255 bottles and has been bottled at a cask strength of 55.5% volume. Bottled in 2015 from a sherry butt.

Leo Tolstoy was born into the Russian Aristocracy in 1828, Leo Tolstoy is regarded as the father of realist fiction. After achieving initial notoriety with his transparently honest, semi-autobiographical novels recounting the Crimean War, he later found fame with his world renowned epics War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Also a keen playwright and philosophical essayist, Tolstoy was a trailblazer of non-violent resistance, with his moral views later influencing the likes of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Ghandi.

Whisky Shop Tasting Notes

Nose - A lovely fresh bouquet lots of fruit, apricot, peaches and cream some sponge cake and fresh almonds. Typical Ben Nevis character is unleashed with a bit of water as grassy and herbal notes join in. Taste- rich with grassy and cereal flavours from the outset, becoming earthy and mossy, (more Ben Nevis traits). Citrus fruits and some nutty toffee lead us on to a pleasant okay finish with a touch of pistachio nut salt tang.
