The whisky typifying this formidable beast is a 45 Year Old Ben Nevis 1972 Single Malt (70cl; 42% ABV) aged in a sherry hogshead, of which only 228 bottles can be found. The Cask 88 Scottish Folklore Series will encompass six unique, single cask expressions; each expression will dictate the myth or legend it embodies.

But soon greed took hold of its founders and soon, any system needed was used to deliver the industry under their thumb.
