An ultra rare 37 year old Highland single malt that was laid down at the Ben Wyvis distillery on the 17th June 1965 and bottled in 2002 as the Final Bottling from the last casks of this short-lived distillery.
'The Final Resurrection' was released in 1999, which at the time was believed to be the final casks of Ben Wyvis. However, owners Whyte & Mackay were left stunned when one 'final' cask was located in their warehouses. Unfortunately though, it belonged to someone else. Or so it was believed, at least until it was revealed that said cask owner had defaulted on their storage fees; resulting in the cask being repossessed. The rest of course is now history...
Drawn from oak cask number 300066, this is one of just 200 very limited bottles that comes with stunning presentation case complete with info card and a set of keys to keep prying eyes and hands off your prized possession.
The Ben Wyvis distillery was built in the Northern Highlands in 1965, on the Invergordon grain distillery complex, and dismantled less than 12 years later. It will probably go down in history as the briefest lifespan of a malt whisky distillery. With very few casks ever been released on the open market, from what as been described as a highly distinctive malt, any bottling from this distillery is going to be highly sought after.
