A special edition whisky from Ben Nevis in celebration of their 185th year. It is an attempt at recreating the McDonald's Traditional Ben Nevis which was a popular dram in the 1880s.
Nose suggests fruit with some gentle peat smoke, great interplay and balance between the two. Also some marmalade and apricot intertwined with vanilla and peat. Palate suggests plenty of dark chocolate and dried fruits with great concentration and a hint of orange zest as well as fruit cake. Body is medium to full. The finish is long and dry with juniper berries and more dark chocolate, oaky notes and just a tiny bit of bitterness is present.
