A cult-favourite 10-year-old highland whisky from Ben Nevis, this is a window back into a previous era of single malts.
Big and oily, slightly sweet but slighty smoky, clean on entry but grungy at times as well - this whisky is a real mix of flavours and emotions.
It's a single malt that's never going to be the world's best selling, but one that is an essential component on many whisky lovers' drinking shelves.
A favourite of Oak Barrel staff through all its iterations and label-upgrades.
Supplied tasting notes:
Nose: Fresh with a rich fruitiness. A snifter of oak, a punch of toffee, fresh figs, sultanas softened, plum jam, orange marmalade, full of character.
Taste: The slightly dry mouthfeel is outstanding, you start you start to chew. Creamy toffee mixes with fudge, you get pops of oak. There's malted barley, christmas cake, subtle vanilla and little peaty notes, you continue to chew.
Finish: This must not come to the end. Balanced spice, dark chocolate, caramel, the richness lingers and the memory remains. The finish is very very long but never long enough.
