Ben Nevis 13yr Hidden Spirits 2006 The Whiskey Exchange Selection

  • Distiller:

    Ben Nevis

  • Bottler:

    Hidden Spirits

  • ABV:

    55.3%

  • Age:

    13 Years

  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Ben Nevis and bottled by Hidden Spirits. Distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2019, this 13 year old expression was bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering.

  • Nose:

    Rich, sticky, syrupy, saturated sherry. Dense, sweet and desserty. Cocoa, honey, fig, blackberry. Apricot, vanilla bean. Smells like dessert.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. A bit of heat. Coffee, toffee, figs and stewed fruits. Lots of pepper and sulfur. Heat grows.

  • Finish:

    Long, a bit of ash. Honey, soapstone, charcoal, light ash. Light syrupy fruity sweetness. Dry, oaky, peppery.

  • Overall:

    What a transformation. The nose was absolutely intoxicating. The palate, less so. A bit hot, a bit dry. The finish was smoky, dry and hot. I wish I could smell this all day but the palate and finish can’t keep up.

  • Score:

    6
