After the glorious “Whispering smoke” arrive at out 2nd single cask tasting note, this time a Highland single cask, distilled 1990. I’ve seen some sites pointing to the Ben Nevis distillery, yet the Wemyss site does not indicate which distillery is behind this one.
Nose : The name is on the money ! Stewed red berries, cherry bubble-gum, apples and some white chocolate.
Palate : spices, vanilla and red fruit pie, with strawberry and red berries. Sprinkled with dried coconut shreds.
Finish: kirsch and wood. Cherry liquor Bon bons.
A very different animal. A unique profile. Will go great with a Chocolate fudge. I find it a bit to berry-ish for myself, but i can see people digging it, as it’s very unique.
