Port Charlotte 15-year-old
Ben Nevis 23-year-old
This 1996 Ben Nevis has an unusual history: spending its first 7 years in a sherry butt, then being divided into two ex-bourbon hogsheads until I was able to reunite the two halves for this bottling. The result is a classic super-fruity, fragrant and complex ’96 Ben Nevis given a bit of extra depth by that first spell in sherry wood. An exceptionally elegant and characterful malt.
439 bottles at 53.6% were produced and they are available for £105 each.
A fully sherry-matured Speysider for the summer? Why ever not! This one has dark berry fruits, honey and toasted teacake on the nose. The palate is creamy, with lemon drops, caramelised pears and an earthy and toasty cardamom spiciness, leading into a hazelnut and dried fruit finish. An affable and quaffable dram, but by no means dull.
This sherry butt produced 455 bottles at 57.6% and they are available for £60 each.
