Whisky Review: The Whisky Agency Ben Nevis 1995 18 Year Old (Blind Tasting Competition 2015 Day 4)

Day 4 of the Blind Tasting Competition 2015 and following the zero points day yesterday, I hope to get back on the horse back today and get some points. I was confused by the greenery on the palate and wondered if it may be a lowlander (Bladnoch or Littlemill), but other than that it felt like a highlander which led me towards Balblair distillery. I went for Balblair 2003 vintage and 46%.

Update: At least I got the region correctly… It’s Ben Nevis 18 bottled by The Whisky Agency back in 2013. The Hogshead yielded 242 and I’m sure I won’t be the only one checking shops for a bottle that was forgotten on a high shelf.
