It keeps going, and going, and going • Video credit to the one and only @scotchandtime • This wall is comprised of 2,500 “whisky bottles”, so the question is, are they filled with ice tea, or whiskey?! •

Your bit of trivia for the day: Michter is a portmanteau (special thanks to Lewis Carroll for teaching creating such a wonderful word) of the names of the owner’s (in 1951) sons Michael and Peter.
FORT WILLIAM LIMITED
TYPE: SINGLE MALT
HISTORY AND FACTS:
A rare single cask Ben Nevis distilled in 1973 and bottled in 1999 from single cask 758.
This is bottle number 109 of 242.
Ben Nevis Distillery established in 1825, is one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland. The distillery is nestled at the foot of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, which has a summit elevation of 4'406 feet above sea level. This imposing mountain provides an impressive background to a traditional Scottish craft.
The distillery was established in 1825 by "Long John" McDonald, a 6ft 4in descendant of a ruler of the western Scottish kingdom of Argyll. In 1878 a second distilling unit was built nearby as an extension to Ben Nevis itself. It was called Nevis and operated as a separate entity for 30 years before being absorbed into the Ben Nevis operation in 1908. A housing development occupies the site of Nevis distillery. In 1989 the distillery was sold by Whitbread to Mitsui, partner of the Japanese whisky-makers Nikka. The new owners restored production of malt but not grain whisky in 1990 under the name Ben Nevis Distillery Co Ltd.
500 Followers ❤. I started this Insta to showcase my collection and in my eyes some of the best that this industry has to offer. I have only been collecting since September of last year and I started out with Johnnie Walker and have slowly started to collect Glenfiddich and Grant's with a few others in between to build up my ever growing collection.
It was one night that I thought I should start to showcase these to the world. that night I started this Instagram. took my first pictures (21 of them) of my small collection of Johnnie Walker and uploaded them. slowly I was getting likes and follows. And slowly my page started to grow. My collection also grew. I started out with 21 bottle of Johnnie Walker, now it's at 79 and is likely to reach 100 very soon. I've met some amazing people that follow the same ideas as me. I've looked at other Instagram's and took inspiration from them all and my quality has improved and it shows as I started in January and by end of February I was at 100, I gained 150 Followers in the last 2 weeks. this growth has been magical!
I started out with a goal of showcasing whisky and hoping to reach 250 Followers by the 1 year mark. I've reached 500 by the 6 month mark. It's actually been incredible and I love doing this. I enjoy the bidding wars, the purchases and taking photos and seeing people's reactions to my collection on here.
Thank you all for this opportunity and I hope my page will continued to grow throughout the rest of the year!

So not is all as it seems with one of these bottles.
Can you guess which one is the odd bottle out?
Guess correctly which one it is (only one guess each please) and the winner will receive a mystery prize! It’ll be worth it, I promise.
Based on the usual level of Instagram interaction it’ll be worth having a punt as I’m imagining there won’t be many guesses but we’ll see. I’ll give it a few days then reveal the bottle and the winner. If there’s more than one, I’ll draw names from a hat.
Anyway, what’s in the line up I hear you say? Ok, so you didn’t say that as you didn’t get this far but I’ll tell you anyway.
Aberlour A’Bunadh batch #60 .
Aberfeldy 12 year old.
Aberfeldy 21 year old.
Aberlour Casg Annamh batch #001 .
The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 years.
All recent purchases but some of them requiring a bit of scouring the dusty shelves of some old wine shops :) #aberlour#aberlourabunadh#aberlourcasgannamh#aberfeldy#homeofdewars#aberfeldy12#aberfeldy21#balvenie#balvenie14#balveniecaribbeancask

Glenfarclas 18 years old is a lightweight single malt, fresh and fragrant. It smells like honeyed apples, citrus, vanilla and sultana. The taste is rich and full with toffee, rum and raisin, plum, warm lemon and hazelnut with and oaky finish.
