Description

In this current 2022 climate of high demand and very slow shipping, getting hold of any Ben Nevis is a near enough a miracle.

What started off as limited edition of a homage to the past, when Long John’s Dew Of Ben Nevis was one of the most popular single malts in the UK, is now a regular feature of the Ben Nevis range.  And that’s right, a fully marketed, distillery bottled single malt from the great era of blends of the late 19th century..

And this new version also has a number of surprises as well. Although young, possibly a 5yo, older malts up to 13yo are also used in the vatting. And one more surprise: them malt comes from both Port Ellen maltings and it’s peated to 35ppm.

From WhiskyNotes, “mildly peaty again, with more ashy and tarry notes than you’ll find in Ben Nevis 10 for instance. Subtle waxy notes, peaches and banana again. Leafy notes, a hint of salted liquorice. A touch of green oak as well. Medium long and oily, on tobacco and oak spice”.
