Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 46%
An 8-year-old Ben Nevis 2014 bottled without colouring or chill filtration by Douglas Laing for the autumn outturn of their Provenance series.
This 2014 Ben Nevis 8-year-old came from Cask DL16321, a single refill hogshead that yielded 450 bottles at the standard Provenance strength of 46%. Ben Nevis's excellent spirit shows plenty of character even at relatively young ages like this, and the distillery's recent popularity suggests this won't be around too long.

Nose: Creamy and buttery as it opens, warming to attractive spices and breakfast cereal.
Palate: Velvety and rich with barley obvious amongst a dark fruit and gingery spice backdrop.
Finish: Now rather toffee’d, with vanilla, honey and sugar evident around the spices.
