The brand

The brand

Acquired by the Japanese group Nikka in 1989, the Ben Nevis distillery was, under the ownership of Joseph W.Hobbs in 1955, one of the only distilleries in Scotland to have its own traditional pot stills and a Coffey-style column still. Bought by Long John Distillers in 1981, the Coffey stills were subsequently dismantled. Although the majority of its whisky is aged in ex-sherry casks, some ex-bourbon cask bottlings have recently appeared on the independent market. It’s worth noting that the distillery was mothballed for six years at the end of the 1970s, and then again in 1984 and from 1986 to 1989.

Merchant

At the head of this independent merchant, Fabio Rossi continues the long tradition of Italian whisky bottling. His bottlings mainly concern malt whiskies from the isle of Islay, and are characterised by their sherry cask finishings.

The line

The whiskies in the Barrel Selection Cask Strength range are, as the name suggests, bottled straight from the cask, with no dilution, filtration or addition of caramel. Single malts at cask strength are not recommended as an introduction to whisky, they are more for the seasoned enthusiast in search of authenticity. When the selected casks are large (for example sherry butts contain around 500 bottles), the whisky is bottled as a single cask; when they are small, a small blend – always of a single malt – is made from several different casks that are of a very similar character and bottled as a ‘small batch’.
