Ben Nevis 51 Years Old 1966 - 2017 La Maison Du Whisky

This unique bottle has been carefully selected by La Maison du Whisky. Distilled in 1996 and patiently matured for 51 years in a hogshead.  One of only 120 produced, all of which are individually numbered.

This particular cask, number 4278 of 1966 was filled on 21st June 1966 at a strength 19.8 overproof. The cask was part of a parcel originally filled in the Ben Nevis company name then sold on to the Bank of Scotland with Ben Nevis distillery buying it back in 1972. It then went through various changes of ownership over the years until reverting back into the distillery's ownership as recently as January 2015. 

In all those 51 years, this cask has remained maturing in the Duty-Free Warehouse at Ben Nevis distillery. nestled under the shadow of the mountain bearing the same name.
