Nevis Dew Aged 12 Years Deluxe Blended Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 40% Age: 12 Years Old Country: Scotland
Ben Nevis Distillery is one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland. The distillery is nestled at the foot of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, which has a summit elevation of 4’406 feet above sea level giving its malt a renowned name ‘the dew of Ben Nevis’ . This imposing mountain provides an impressive background to a traditional Scottish craft. The distillery was founded by ‘Long John’ Macdonald (no he was not a pirate) in 1825 and in 1848 in a cunning way of promotion presented a cask to Queen Victoria when she visited Fort William. They produce both malt and grain whiskies simultaneously due to installation in 1955 of a special still.
This whisky is so rich in malt content that many people think of it as a single malt whisky. Aged for 12 years in ex- bourbon, ex-sherry and ex-wine casks and bottled at 40% abv.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: All the lovely Ben Nevis notes we expected toffee, caramels, barley, smoke and oak.
Taste: Caramel sweetness combines with a rich malty full bodied mouthfeel. There’s malt, there’s sweetness and there’s smoke.
Finish: Fruit driven and spicy.
