All about making whisky
When Ben Nevis has so much personality and originality, one thing is certain, the word ‘boring’ is not on the agenda. This cask strength whisky aged in sherry casks is a relatively rare vintage, as well as being difficult to figure out. The only thing predictable about it is its unpredictability. Shunning consensus, this bottling has left the beaten track proclaiming to all: let those who love me follow me. The distinctive character of Ben Nevis is undoubtedly present in this release with its pervasive notes of exotic fruits. For such a young vintage it is particularly mature, almost astringent. Not far off perfect!
Single Cask #586 - Sherry Butt exclusively from LMDW Profile: authentic. Exotic fruits, mentholated, spicy, aquatic flowers (water lilies) and slightly peaty. Orange blossom and fresh coriander. Dark chocolate, black liquorice and tar.

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.
