Ben Nevis Tasting Notes
Nose: Sweet butterscotch and honey grates. Fragrant and full, perfume like. After even a short time in the glass this then changes into fresh orange juice and orange zest, tropical fruits, and lychee. Again, supported by the butterscotch.
Palate: Well rounded. Milk chocolate sweetness, white grapes, and summer fruit.
Finish: Just a touch of sparkly, fresh orange juice. Lingering like a nice summer evening.
About this single cask release
A new whisky in Roger's Whisky Co Vintage Selection range. This whisky is a nice contrast to his previous Ben Nevis bottling in the same range. No peat or sherry maturation this time, but a nice, layered bourbon cask matured bottle. The label is in the same style as the Ben Nevis in Drop 2, but there’s a clear summery vibe to it.
