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.

Meet the founder

Roger Tan

Roger started his whisky journey in 1995, where many of us started: as a casual enthusiast of single malts, appreciating the nuances and subtleties between whiskies and distilleries.

In 2019 he started photographing whisky bottles for his Instagram. He delighted in meeting great, like-minded, from all over the world; talking about whisky, and just plain having fun!

After a while, Roger was struck by the dream of setting up his own whisky company. So, that's exactly what he did. He made his dream come true, with the arrival of Roger’s Whisky Company in 2020. Starting modest, but with big ambitions - and plenty of the best whisky along the way.
