Ben Nevis 1997 Private Vintage 
 
Ben Nevis is one of the distilleries that define Highland Single Malt. It was built at the foot of the highest mountain in the British Isles and close to the coast in Western Highlands. It draws only the finest from its surroundings. Being in business since the beginning of the 19th century, this distillery has seen its share of innovation and played a major role in creating many of the finest Scottish Blends.
 
What earned our almost impossible-to-earn seal of approval, is that they still make their Single Malt the same way they did all those years ago… A true Highlander that has the power to turn any doubter into a believer. 
 
The 2nd edition is just that: Whisky aged in a single cask for 18 years, no experimentation, no excuse —
an eternal classic.

Long John blended Scotch -- one of the rarest and most expensive blended Whiskies -- is named after Long John McDonald.
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.
Ben Nevis (the mountain) is the highest point in all of the UK, rising 4,406 feet above sea level.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
