Bottled for the Hopscotch bar in Liverpool this interesting bottling of Ben Nevis was bottled way back in 2016 and forgotten about in a warehouse. From the famous 1996 distillate at Ben Nevis this single (presumably sherry) hogshead has been reduced in abv at bottling.
Nose: Strawberry yoghurt and old school sherry characteristics. Perhaps it’s a little bit of “old bottle effect” but it’s crept in very quickly if so. Tangerine skins and boiled orange lollies.
Palate: The sherry character is very subtly integrated making for a whisky that could very easily be finished of in a couple of sittings. Lock up all your fellow whisky nerds! Now back to the serious notes, Maccas apple pie and buttered toast.
