- ABV 46%
Ben Nevis distillery was established in 1825 by 'Long John' McDonald, a 6ft 4in descendant of a ruler of the western Scottish kingdom of Argyll. In 1878 a second distilling unit was built nearby as an extension to Ben Nevis itself. It was called Nevis and operated as a separate entity for 30 years before being absorbed into the Ben Nevis operation in 1908. A housing development occupies the site of Nevis distillery. In 1989 the distillery was sold by Whitbread to Mitsui, partner of the Japanese whisky-makers Nikka. The new owners restored production of malt but not grain whisky in 1990 under the name Ben Nevis Distillery Co Ltd.
Ben Nevis 10 Year Old was introduced to the market in 1996 using whisky produced in 1986, the last year that Long John International produced whisky at the distillery. After initially slow sales, the whisky was repackaged in a presentation tube and increasing awareness of its quality soon saw it become the distilleries largest selling brand. It has since been awarded a grand gold medal by Monde Selection in 1999 and again in 2000 as well as winning a gold medal in 2001 and a trophy for three consecutive years of being awarded gold and grand gold medals.
rich flavours and textures'.
Tasting note: Nose: Much weightier and characterful than most 10 Years Olds. Toffee and fresh figs. Enticing. Palate: Glorious mouth feel: chewy and lush with cream toffee giving way to a sprinkling of demerara. Finish: Brilliant! Just a hint of fettered spice, and then waves of oak and malt with vanilla. Comment: This is a solid, gutsy whisky with wave-upon-wave of rich flavours and textures. A truly great malt. Older in style than the label suggests. 46% Alc./Vol. Rating: 9/10 - Jim Murray, www.whiskymag.com
Other Reviews... Antique gold. Aromas of toffee, malty sweetness, fresh mint and subtle oak. Mouth coating, creamy texture-almost chewy-with flavors of toffee, almonds, dark chocolate, and subtle wood spices on the finish. This is a very pleasing, straightforward whisky that is quite mature for its age. 86 points.
