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.

Ben Nevis (the mountain) is the highest point in all of the UK, rising 4,406 feet above sea level.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Long John blended Scotch -- one of the rarest and most expensive blended Whiskies -- is named after Long John McDonald.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
