The Fisherman’s Retreat journey into cask exploration has entered new heights with our latest release of this Scottish, single cask, single malt whisky!

Edition 13 is here and we didn’t have to wait long for this juggernaut of a dram to come to fruition.

At only four years of age this Ben Nevis single malt whisky has matured beyond its years after being carefully nurtured in a first fill American oak, ex-Yalumba fortified wine barrel which has led to a truly remarkable transformation.

The journey from newborn spirit to bottle has taken less time than usual thanks to this casks unique size which has given a greater spirit on wood contact.

We can only describe this single malt whisky as a thing of beauty, not only pleasurable on the eye, but it will dazzle your senses and entice your tastebuds with every sip.

At 54% abv and with only 173 bottles produced it won’t be around for long!

Tasting Notes...


What an amazing colour for a whisky of this age, getting it in a glass is the first priority! Beautiful deep rich tones of mahogany, orange bronze, and deep red autumnal leaves. A roll of the glass reveals a waterfall of natural oils slowly creeping down to rejoin this mesmerising liquid.


Wow! Everything that makes me want to drink whisky is in this glass! Rich, fruity notes take the lead, raisins, figs and Christmas pudding all standout, a few more swirls of the glass release toffee, bananas and hints of vanilla and marzipan. With every pass this dram becomes more intriguing.


This is one powerful dram, at 54% ABV it doesn’t hold back, big bold flavours take charge from the start, the initial hit of fruit is sublime, figs, raisins, and more vanilla than on the nose, the sweetness is incredible but yet not overpowering the spirit that it came from, an oily and creaminess encompasses the whole of the mouth with a finish that is gentle and lasting throughout.


A fantastic and flavoursome whisky that works its magic from nose to palate and does not disappoint. Both the Ben Nevis spirit and Yalumba’s Fortified Wine cask have given their all to produce a dram of outstanding quality. A 4-year-old whisky that can go toe to toe with the big boys all day long.
"This combination of the American oak, Yalumba fortified wine cask together with a fantastic spirit has produced a truly unique and fantastic single malt whisky. This might only be a youngster in the whisky world but it's one hell of a dram!"
