Maverick Drinks Ben Nevis Tasting Notes

Posted: January 27, 2017 in Ben Nevis, Scotch Whisky A-G

Maverick Drinks Darkness! Ben Nevis 17 year old 49%

Palo Cortado Sherry Cask Finish/ Cask No 1494/ Tasted: Oct 2015

Very herbal and meaty aromas with malt, treacle and sweet, dark honey. This is a serious maltfest! With time a touch of vanilla oak, cold tea and earth appears.

The palate is thick and malty. I need a knife and fork for this one! Treacle, building bitter tannins and the alcohol kick in on the middle to balance the sweetness, but there’s no subduing the malt! Long and treacly with mouth-watering barley, citrus, subtle sweet spice and guess what? Yes. Malt!
