Having just posted about clean living… here’s something about drinking good whisky.
Ben Nevis 17 yo Highland single malt. 510 bottles available. 46 %, aged in a bourbon hogshead.
Ben Nevis Distillery is situated near the bottom of Ben Nevis peak (1,344 m; 4409 ft.) the highest point in Scotland.
I purchased this fine bottle from Cadenheads on The Royal Mile the other day. If you’re heading to Edinburgh for a visit and fancy picking up some whisky, make sure you stop and talk to Marc at the shop. They are knowledgable beyond belief and are sure to point you in the direction of something you will enjoy.
This particular tipple isn’t chill filtered or artificially colored. There is a certain pleasant stickiness to it that I associate with non-filtered whiskies. This one in particular has a long finish that rolls across your tongue. The aroma is slightly buttery. The notes say soft spearmint and white chocolate. The taste is slightly fruity and has a pleasant citrus edge to it. This is a fine dram.
