Ben Nevis 17 year old (Claxtons)
Another single cask example from Claxtons, I've enjoyed a good amount of different drams from Claxtons and this was yet another.
Another distillery I haven't spent enough time with, and there are plenty of interesting indepedent bottlings out there, so i think i need to dig them out.
Delicious dram filled with lots of tropical fruit and fresh sweet notes, a hint of meaty cold cured meats and a splash of pepper spice for good measure, this is a delicious wee dram of yumminess.
Thanks to Claxton's Spirits for the official sample.
Waxy Vanilla pods with marzipan animal shapes then a huge amount of sweet juicy tropical fruits, mango, papaya and fresh pineapple a touch of oak leaf sauce and a splash of car wax
Lovely light and easy drinking, the topical fruits and back in abundance with more of that wax, a touch of ground white pepper adds spice and some sweet prosciutto and Parma ham, with melon
Sweet peppery meaty
