Character Goatson
This was distilled at the Ben Nevis distillery in 1999 and it was aged in a bourbon barrel. It was selected by Jim McEwan and taken to the Bruichladdich distillery where it was re-racked into a Grenache Blanc cask from Cellier de la Donna Fort. It was bottled in 2007 and taken down to bottling strength with Islay spring water. This is part of a release of 3,000 bottles.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Long John blended Scotch -- one of the rarest and most expensive blended Whiskies -- is named after Long John McDonald.
Ben Nevis (the mountain) is the highest point in all of the UK, rising 4,406 feet above sea level.
