Ben Nevis Tasting Notes

Nose: A rich, warming, nose. Feels distinctly more aged and complex than its 6 years. Slight medicinal peat, mixed with old leather. Then a touch of fresh raspberries, again mixed with comforting caramelised red onion and cinnamon spice.

Palate: Heavy peat arrives, with lush sherry tones. Slightly medicinal, warm, a touch drying like dark cacao or dark chocolate. Well rounded mouthfeel.

Finish: The finish is long with clear cacao tones.

About this single cask release

This is the second release from new Independent Bottler Roger's Whisky Company, hot on the heels of his extremely well received Caol Ila. Part of Roger Tan's "Vintage Selection" range, this is a rather unusual Ben Nevis release - a youthful age statement of 6 years old, coupled with a heavily peated first fill sherry cask to amp up the flavour profile, adding notes of smoke and peat.

As with Rogers Whisky Co's other whiskies, the label for this Ben Nevis single cask release is beautifully designed, reminiscent of the Art Deco golden age of international travel: two campers enjoy sharing a contemplative dram next to their smokey campfire, overlooked by the powerful Ben Nevis mountain range.

What you need to know about taxes

All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
