The Dram

Nose: The nose opens with a distinct aroma of malted barley, evoking images of a traditional whisky distillery. Alongside the barley, there's a subtle note of beeswax, adding a touch of complexity to the nose. Additionally, a hint of walnut lends a nutty richness to the aroma.

Palate: The palate is rich and indulgent, with a prominent flavor of vanilla pod that adds a creamy sweetness to the whisky. A slight hint of oily peat emerges, providing a smoky undertone that's balanced by a touch of salty licorice, adding a savory note to the palate.

Finish: The finish is long and satisfying, with a creamy sensation that lingers on the palate. A note of cinnamon adds warmth and spice, enhancing the overall complexity of the whisky. Additionally, there's a subtle hint of camphor, offering a unique twist to the finish.

The Distillery

Ben Nevis Distillery is one of Scotland's oldest distilleries, located at the foot of the Ben Nevis mountain in the town of Fort William. The distillery was established in 1825 by John McDonald, who named it after the mountain that dominates the local landscape. The distillery's location was ideal for producing whisky, as it had access to an abundant supply of fresh water from the Allt a' Mhuilinn burn and was situated near the Caledonian Canal, which facilitated transportation of the whisky to markets in the south.

Over the years, Ben Nevis Distillery has experienced several changes in ownership and undergone several renovations and upgrades. In 1955, the distillery was acquired by Long John Distillers, which modernized the facilities and increased production capacity. In 1989, the distillery was acquired by Nikka Whisky Distilling, a Japanese company, which added its own unique touches to the distillery's whisky-making process. Today, Ben Nevis Distillery continues to produce high-quality single malt Scotch whisky using traditional methods, including the use of wooden washbacks and direct-fired stills. Its whiskies are known for their robust character, with a distinctive note of peat smoke that is characteristic of whiskies from the western Highlands of Scotland.
