Ben Nevis 10 Years Old. Image courtesy Ben Nevis Distillery.This is the flagship malt from Ben Nevis Distillery, located at the base of the UK’s highest mountain. The nose is aromatic and fruity with notes of red apples, peaches, orange peel, a nice maltiness, beeswax, and a hint of butterscotch. The taste is thick and fruity with orange peel, mango, red apples, butterscotch, and a note of cinnamon spice that builds up slowly and dominates through the finish with subtle fruity touches underneath and a mouth-watering juiciness. Water brings out the fruitiness on the palate and mutes the spiciness a little bit. (May, 2015)
