    Single cask Ben Nevis is often said to be hit or miss but never in-between. Chapter 7's Ben Nevis story is definitely on the hit side of it.

    A bit treacherous (in a good way) perhaps for when I wrote the tasting notes I didn't know what type of cask was used to mature the whisky. I could easily look it up but decided to make my notes first in an unbiased way. And see, upon re-reading them I would have put my money on a refill sherry cask...

    Pretty good mountain dew that should make it's way from the Scottish Highlands to your mouth with a detour via Switzerland.
    • Nose
      A shot of spices and balsamico vinegar enters the nose. Sandalwood, somewhat older lambic beer and soft pink candy. Red fruits and raspberry infused syrup. A yummy lemon tart with raspberry coulis. Brown sugar and crème brûlée.

      With water I'm getting dusty aromas and a light sourness in the nose. This is almost like entering a damp old wine cellar. Fermented raisins with grenadine and a very pronounced rose perfume.
    • Taste
      Lots of rounded and full fruit flavours. Strawberries and raspberry. A tiny touch of grenadine. A very light and entertaining texture. Raspberry beer!

      Water gives me (again) raspberry and grenadine flavours. Old fermented grape stones give this whisky a woody yet sweet mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      A medium long finish with sweetness.
