Ben Nevis 4 Year Old (2015) - Càrn Mòr Strictly Limited
The Càrn Mòr Strictly Limited range of Scotch Whisky from the Family-owned Independent Bottlers, Morrison and Mackay, are a collection of Scotch whiskies from some of the finest distilleries in Scotland. What makes the whiskies so special is that all the whiskies are non-chill-filtered to keep all of the oils and proteins that give it that fantastic authentic and non-doctored flavour in the bottle. As real as it gets.
At the foot of the UK's tallest mountain, of the same name, the Ben Nevis distillery is found. the distillery is owned the Japanese firm, Nikka, and is respected for making strong and intense spirit.
While only a 4 years old this malt wears its youth particularly well. Slightly peated and matured in a pair of sherry hogsheads the malt shows stewed fruits, raisins, loads of leather and dried orange peel. A whack of earthiness, and the overall impact is sensational. Finishes long and spicy.
