Ben Nevis 14 yo 1996 (46%, Dram Mor, refill sherry) 
Dram Mor are a new indy bottler based in Glasgow, apparently this one was from already bottled stock that hadn’t been released previously.


Colour: bright gold.


Nose: very buttery and rich, close to the other 1996s but just a little more lively and youthful. Quince, brown sugar, toffee apple, breads, ginger biscuits and a very lovely leafiness which adds a sense of forest freshness and damp earth.


Mouth: great arrival, all on golden syrup, freshly baked brown bread, walnuts, white balsamic, olive oil, eucalyptus sweets - lots going on but there’s still strong sense of balance and cohesion. Also again getting rather gingery, spicy and warm.


Finish: medium, bready, slightly nutty and getting rather salty with a little meatiness.


Comments: very good Ben Nevis that feels rather bigger than its ABV would suggest. Extremely fat and guzzleable stuff!

Nose: Beautifully rich millionaire shortbread hits the senses in abundance followed by butterscotch sauce with hidden notes of salt caramel.

Palate: As this silky dram runs rings round your taste buds your palate thanks you for the gift of warm toffee and a tingle of chilli chocolate. This is framed with a nostalgic taste of fruit and nut bar.

Finish: Fresher than expected at first but soon opens into a gentle wave of warm spice with freshly baked banana and walnut loaf.
