5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.85 points

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      More distillate-driven than the last year release. Modern sherry and new oak, roasted barley, quite tannic, grape skins.
    • Taste
      Mellow, not as ABV suggested, oak spices, dates and leather, hints of sulphur, refreshing mints, herbal water.
    • Finish
      Long, iodine, gun powder, new oak, phenolic sherry.

    This whisky is released by Hidden Spirits and The Whisky Exchange where i was lucky enough to try this wonderful dram.

    A heavily peated Ben Nevis from a sherry cask is not something that you come by everyday, and that’s a shame because this is a lovely dram. Full sherry and peat with fruit and red berries in the finish, it combines peat and sherry in great way.

    Of course i had to pick up a bottle, so more notes to come...

    TWE: "This 2006 Ben Nevis has been bottled by Hidden Spirits and The Whisky Exchange after spending 13 years maturing in a single first-fill sherry butt and being finished in a single first-fill sherry hogshead. This heavily-peated single malt has a rich, smoky character with a fruity, spicy core."
