Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : cuivre orangé soutenu.
  • Nose : vineux, onctueux. Des pétales de rose et des cerises à l’eau-de-vie, voilà ce que propose un premier nez particulièrement emballant. Le Porto Ruby marque de son empreinte le début de la dégustation. Puis, des abricots confits, des fraises et des framboises accentuent son influence sur la palette aromatique. Progressivement, des notes d’orge maltée, de sous-bois (champignons) et de paille arrivent à se frayer un chemin.
  • Palate : complexe, riche. Très différente du nez, son attaque fait preuve d’une grande fermeté minérale (ardoise, argile). Des fruits exotiques (mangue, kaki) alimentent un milieu de bouche très Ben Nevis. Elle se prolonge sur des notes soyeuses de miel de bruyère, de coulis de framboise et de gelée de coing. Du tabac frais ponctue la fin de bouche.
  • Overall : longue, caressante. Son toucher évoque celui de la peau des raisins noirs prêts à être cueillis. Celle-ci est épaisse et croquante. Des notes de fruits noirs (cassis, cerise) accentuent son caractère fruité. Quelques oranges lui apportent l’acidité nécessaire pour qu’elle continue de gagner en longueur. La rétro-olfaction est tertiaire (mousse, lichen). Le verre vide met ex æquo Ben Nevis et le vin de Porto.
The brand

The brand

Acquired by the Japanese group Nikka in 1989, the Ben Nevis distillery was, under the ownership of Joseph W.Hobbs in 1955, one of the only distilleries in Scotland to have its own traditional pot stills and a Coffey-style column still. Bought by Long John Distillers in 1981, the Coffey stills were subsequently dismantled. Although the majority of its whisky is aged in ex-sherry casks, some ex-bourbon cask bottlings have recently appeared on the independent market. It’s worth noting that the distillery was mothballed for six years at the end of the 1970s, and then again in 1984 and from 1986 to 1989.
