Released at Whisky Show 2019 as part of our Magic of the Cask series, this 1996 Ben Nevis single malt has spent 22 years in a single refill sherry butt, before being bottled in 2019. Aromas of cherries, sultanas and raisins fill the nose, alongside sherry-soaked fruit cake and a gentle, earthy backdrop. The palate offers notes of sweet fruit, dark chocolate, leather, brown sugar and sweet spices.

Tasting Notes

  • Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose:

      Fruit rolls out of the glass – cherries, sultanas and raisins – with oloroso-sherry-soaked fruit cake not far behind. Damp leaves and rich earth provide a savoury backdrop, with fruit sweetness dancing on top.

    • Palate:

      Sweet and fruity, with a thick and dark backbone chocolate and leather. Dried cherries, apple rings and sultanas are sprinkled with brown sugar while a river of molasses and fruity dark chocolate flows underneath. Soft and sweet spice sits on top like a light blanket, with hints of old oak and forest floor slowly building.

    • Finish:

      Sweet chocolate cake slowly becomes bittersweet. Dried cherries and apples linger
