BEN NEVIS 45 ans 1966 D.Laing


Self pick-up from our Shop in Robertson Quay only.

This was distilled at Ben Nevis in June 1966. It was then aged for a whopping 45 years in a single sherry hogshead (cask 8194) before bottling for Douglas Laing’s Director’s Cut range in April of 2012. A release of just 146 bottles, all at natural cask strength.

Ben Nevis is a distillery founded in 1825 that has been owned by the Japanese group Nikka since 1989. Located on the mainland coast of western Scotland, at the foot of the highest mountain in Great Britain, Ben Nevis is known for aging in old sherry barrels. In recent years, the Ben Nevis distillery seemed to be somewhat dormant, but it has not said its last word. It was in 2012 that the awakening occurred with the arrival of the intensely peaty Ben Nevis Traditional. The distillery still has hidden beauties that are waiting to awaken.
