重聚的 Ben Nevis

The Reunited Ben Nevis


雖然 Chorlton Whisky 並非首次推出 Ben Nevis 作品,本次卻是由一桶酒拆散熟成後再調合而成,故事比起一般單桶作品來得特別。這對兄弟本身同在一個 Sherry Butt 內熟成,經過 7 年時間的相處後,分開到兩個不同的 Bourbon Hogshead 內各自熟成,到了第 23 年才再次在酒瓶內相會,成為這支 Ben Nevis 的一段小故事。


分別在 Sherry Butt 和 Bourbon Cask 內熟成過後,令它的香氣層次變得複雜,起初帶有蘋果、蜜瓜、香蕉等果香味,在酒杯放置一會後再散發出青檸汁和水果口香糖的氣味。入口感覺油潤,像烤過的牛油面包,再帶著像紅加侖子的甜味,最後留下葡萄柚氣息作結尾。


有別於其他肉味,硫味較重的 Ben Nevis ,這對相會後的兄弟是近來 IB 中少有地偏重果香的一款作品。


The Reunited Ben Nevis


Whisky from Ben Nevis is not the first time selected by David, owner of Chorlton Whisky, and this time, there is an unusual story behind the bottle. At the very beginning, the whisky was maturing in one single Sherry Butt for 7 years, then separated into two Bourbon Hogsheads for its further 16 year-old maturation, and the two casks finally met again in the bottle. It seems like two brothers reuniting after the long lost.


The aroma of this Ben Nevis 23 YO gets very complex after the double maturation in Sherry Butt and Bourbon Hogsheads, on nose, it starts with apple, melon and banana, after few minutes of breathing, it becomes more tropical with hints of lime cordial and juicy fruit gum. Very oily and on palate, like a toasted bread with butter and redcurrant jelly, and it ends with pink grapefruits.


Unlike most Ben Nevis IB, it is not that intense with sulphur, but with a lot of refreshing fruity notes, which you should not miss.
