First Editions Ben Nevis 1996 Description

This single cask expression was distilled in 1996 at Ben Nevis distillery at the foot of the UK's tallest mountain. Bottled by renowned indie bottler Hunter Laing & Co., this expression was matured in a single sherry butt for more than two decades. Just 34 bottles have been produced at a preferred strength of 50% abv, higher than the 46% abv that First Editions bottlings usually carry. As with all the releases in the First Editions series, this single malt is free from chill filtration and artificial colouring.
