Highland Park 50 Year Old

Highland Park, the northernmost distillery in Scotland, recently unveiled its oldest and most expensive whisky to date, the unparalleled Highland Park 50 Year Old ($17,500), a vatting (combining) of five oloroso sherry-barrel-aged single malts distilled in 1960. Bottled at 89.8 proof, this whisky bears an aroma that presents a slight sting of alcohol quickly muted by a complex bouquet of licorice, lemon, and Highland Park’s signature hint of nutmeg, with a trace of smoke in the finish.

- I had the opportunity to taste this wonderful creation. I’m in love. Now I will never give you a shot because it’s like 17.5 a bottle but you can watch me enjoy it. Highland Park super smooth with a clean finish. The bottle design and presentation demands respect. This is for Bosses!!!
