Ben Nevis is not my favorite distillery so far, but this bottling by Alambic Classique is supposedly very good. I won't get my hopes up too high, but will this be the first Ben Nevis that I actually like?
A worthy trio of whiskies for the Whisky Show 2018, and each of them really does represent their era. The Ben Nevis is of an old-school style, while the Ledaig stands for one of the better modern day whisky the industry has to offer presently. A single grain as the future? Coul very well be. This Invergordon is certainly one of the better iterations I've had the pleasure of tasting.
While I've appreciated the general high quality of Ben Nevis, I never really enjoyed its dirty-ish style. That is, until recently it seems. Hopefully this Ben Nevis 1996 from The Daily Dram will be another positive experience for me.
