What a fantastic old example from the Orkney based Highland Park! Distilled way back in the 50's (1959 to be exact) and matured for 21 years before being bottled in 1976. Complete with neck tag.
It's incredibly rare to find bottles like this and we'd love to crack it open and try a dram.
Colour: gold amber. Nose: oh yes, again one of these stunning old ‘dumpy’ Highland Parks. Very resinous, with lots of dried fruits (all sorts), beehive… It then gets very heathery (the marker is well here), with some bold caramel and praline. Whiffs of smoke and spices… Absolutely stunning. Mouth: oh, it’s so balanced and so satisfying! Superbly coating, with lots of herbal tea again, dried fruits (all sorts again), caramel crème, and bunches of soft spices. Just brilliant. No less than 95 points.
