BEN NEVIS 31 years old 1984 Single Cask - 60th Anniversary LMDW 56,4%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 51683

Aged for 13 years in first-fill bourbon casks before being matured for 18 years in oloroso sherry casks, this Ben Nevis was distilled in 1984 and has managed to retain all of its youthful insouciance while displaying a spectacularly beautiful maturity. Sumptuous aromas of rose, honeysuckle, hyacinth, lavender, lily, iris (concentrate), lime blossom and violets form the backbone through which all of its aromatic and gustatory facets gradually emerge, resulting in a total freedom of tone.

Profile: refined, sleek. Delicately floral (roses), the nose becomes roasted (coffee) and herbaceous. Heady (honeysuckle). The palate is floral and fruity (Mirabelle plum), with a dusting of cocoa. Refreshing note of lime blossom. The finish evokes a rum baba and various infusions (camomile).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold with copper tinges.
  • Nose : fine, distinguished. The nose opens with a subtle and exquisite fragrance of roses. As delicate as ever, it slowly becomes praline-scented, with roasted (coffee) and herbaceous (cut hay, ivy) notes. As it breathes, honeysuckle and hyacinth accentuate its deliciously heady nature. Spices and chillies gradually coat the aromatic palette.
  • Palate : rich, nuanced. Boasting the same complexity as the nose, it unfurls with mingled notes of honey (lavender), praline, cocoa, flowers (lily, iris) and fruit (Mirabelle plum, pear). The mid-palate is remarkably spicy (star anise, saffron). Its incredibly refined graininess is reminiscent of rice cakes. Then it moves into the shade of some lime blossom that exudes its gorgeous fragrance on a balmy June night.
  • Overall : long, balanced. Characterised by notes of violet-infused liquorice candy, it is wonderfully mouth-watering. Rich and roasted, it offers rum baba-like flavours. The retro-nasal olfaction is a thirst-quenching infusion of camomile and vervain. The empty glass is a faithful mirror of the elegance of the initial nose.

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.
