Remark : Here's a request from : J.B.Kaniewski
I have been assured that a whisky probably from Ireland or Scotland by the name of BARLEYCORN exists. I cannot find it in the superb lists that you have created. Any chance of finding out more about the above-mentioned whisky? - I would be very grateful.

I've been surfing around on different web-search engines looking for Barleycorn - The only reply is : 1. John Barleycorn. / Books / Songs etc. Irish singer.. (Singing Pub song's (Also mention a Barleycorn grain !) Some pub's and a homebrew shop. Perhaps it's a homemade whisky made on the Sir John Barleycorn Pub in Ireland. ?

A cask of Ben Nevis was presented to Queen Victoria on her visit to Fort William on 21 April 1848. The cask was not to be opened until the Prince of Wales reached his majority 15 years later.

From the book 'The Scottish Collection' Classic Malts by Carol P. Shaw :
Tasting notes : Ranging from pale amber to a deep, golden coulour, Ben Nevis is characterized by its fresh, slightly peaty flavour and smooth finish. Tasting rating = 3
Ben Nevis Distillery, standing at the foot of Scotland's highest mountain, is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. It was founded at Fort William by the famous local character. the 'Long' John Macdonald in 1825. (The brand name of Long John and the distillery company became separated.) After more than 100 years and three generations in the family, the distillery was sold in 1941. The subsequent addition of a patent still made the distillery one of the few that could produce both malt and grain under one roof, and it received a new lease of life in the late 1980's following its acquisition by the Nikka Whisky Distilling Co. of Japan.
