Highland Region — Ben Nevis
Ben Nevis 10 years old 46%
Ben Nevis is a classic west coast Highland dram from Fort William, right below the Ben (mountain) itself. Very rich and deep to start with a medley of golden syrup, orangey marmalade and a thread of mocha-chocolate in the background. A wonderfully old-fashioned style of whisky that is not often seen these days.
Ben Nevis 'Provenance' 2006 / 10 years old 46%
This single cask bottling of Ben Nevis was matured for 10 years in a refill hogshead cask. Fragrant and sweet initially, it builds to notes of barley and warm spices (ginger in particular) with a peppery tone, moving towards a confectionery, honeyed sweetness. A soft, light and mild example of the often robust Ben Nevis style.
