    LMDW Notice: It must be proclaimed loud and clear: this Ben Nevis 25 years Mr Taketsuru Single Cask is a marvel! Immersed in a deep sleep since 1986, the Ben Nevis distillery was bought in 1990 by Takeshi Taketsuru, son of Masataka Taketsuru, who restarted production and made many adjustments. As a nod to his father's home, he fills this first cask to celebrate the union of the Ben Nevis distillery and Nikka. This exceptional whisky thus ages for 25 years in a hoghead-type barrel in the cellars of Ben Nevis. Takeshi Taketsuru died in 2014, at the age of 90, without being able to taste this precious whisky.
