An 8 year old blended malt created in the 1960s and named in honour of Ben Nevis Distillery's founder 'Long' John McDonald, who still own the brand today. Bottled at a hefty 58%, it displays a spicy kick.

Oily, grimy aroma - green, unripe fruits, olives, and pickled gherkins. Which I love. Undiluted it has a savoury, dried fruit note consistent with sherry cask. Reminds me of Glenfarclas 101. The only downside with this one is that it doesn’t take water very well - it goes a bit vegetal and cabbagy. But undiluted it’s great. Just means small sips and small doses are recommended. Nice to see an age statement. I like Ben Nevis - feels like they still produce and market the old fashioned way.
This is a fabulous bottle of whisky! For my taste it requires some water as at 58% (cask strength) the alcohol is initially overpowering, but once the water has done it's job and it has been left in the glass for 10 mins for the angels to take their share, then you are rewarded with an amazing experience, especially for less than £40 a bottle. This needs to be savoured and if you take the time to allow the flavours to be fully released then you will be well rewarded.
Was bought this as a present and it’s sadly very poor quality and tastes very much like a £10 supermarket blend. It is absolutely not at the right price point for the quality it offers and I would recommend to avoid. There are plenty of much better whiskeys for a lot less money.
