In 1825 ‘Long’ John McDonald founded the distillery in the foothills of the famous Ben Nevis mountain in the Highlands of Scotland. In 1989 the distillery was sold to the renowned Japanese whisky company Nikka who use much of the single malt for their own blends. The distillery’s 10 year old single malt was recently given a fresh design plus a none age statement has been added the portfolio.

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Creamy, with homemade vanilla fudge, peanut brittle and a lovely soft milk chocolate note.   Dig a little deeper and you’ll find some fresh plums, dried apricots and freshly-baked Portuguese custard tarts.

Palate: Delicate and slightly perfumed at first, then comes a swathe of fresh creamy custard, a touch of menthol, some well seasoned vanilla-steeped oakiness and a touch of pipe tobacco.  A little water brings more fresh fruitiness, with ripe pear and summer pudding.

Finish: Lingering notes of creamy custard and a slightly tropical note of kiwi fruit, balanced nicely with a light incense and a touch of parma violet.
