Ben Nevis Traditional pay homage to a popular whisky from Ben Nevis distillery in the 1800's. More heavily peated than modern Ben Nevis and predominantly matured in Sherry casks. This whisky combines sweet sherried fruit with thick bonfire smoke and savoury flavours of cured meat, pepper, clove, bitter orange, and woody spice. A full bodied and complex single malt.
