A fabulous release from Ben Nevis that is exclusive to us here at The Whisky Shop. This wonderful Highland expression was distilled in 2012 and spent nine years maturing in an oak cask. It spent a furher seven months maturing in an octave before being bottled at 55.3% in 2022. There have been just 84 bottles of this sumptuously sweet expression produced.
Aromas of banana loaf, fresh summer berries, and white chocolate arrive on the nose. This sweetness continues on the palate, with hints of almonds and chocolate appearing, followed by massive sherry notes. The finish has the slightest hint of smoke which is quickly extinguished by some hidden notes of tropical fruit.
