Tasting Notes by tjb

A lovely drop from the foot of Ben Nevis. This distillery of the same name but this is an indie bottling from Signatory.

A 1991 vintage, distilled 16.08.91 and bottled 22 years later 10.04.14. A highland spirit stored in a sherry butt. Cask 2910 bottle 46 of 819. NCF. Natural colour.

Light gold in appearance with some grassy and citrus fruit notes. Honey, oak (as you would expect at this age) developing when a few drops of water are added.

Very smooth on the palate, some pepper with hints of light fruit and oak followed by a medium finish of lingering pepper and oak.

Interestingly.... The water makes the nose less sweet and adds more oak and yet gives the palate less oak and more sweet.
