2009 Single Cask Nation Ben Nevis 8 Years is a lovely little whisky hailing from the Ben Nevis distillery which has been pumping out whisky since 1825. It’s not one of the most well known distilleries outside of the whisky geek realm, but they produce some mighty tasty whisky. It was founded by “Long John” McDonald – called so because he was 6’ 4” and when he died in 1856 ownership transferred to his son… Donald McDonald. I don’t know if Long John was mean or just had no imagination.

NOSE
Nutty, buttery sherry enhanced with layers of spiced fruitcake, chocolate covered oranges, marzipan, dried dark fruit and a bit of nutmeg. Water enhances the nutty and buttery aspect and dulls down the spice a bit.

PALATE
Sherry explodes over the palate sending shrapnel of nuts, chocolate orange, spiced fruitcake, dried dark fruit and marzipan to the far corners of the palate. A light dusting of malty sweetness settles before heading into the finish. Water brings out more of the nutty aspect.

FINISH
Long sherry-laden fade that dives into notes of roasted malt, baking spice and cocoa.

BALANCE, BODY & FEEL
Good sense of balance, full body and a warm silken feel.
