Highland Park 50 Year Old

Highland Park 50 Year Old is the distillery's oldest and most prestigious release. Only 275 bottles of this remarkable Limited Edition are available. It is a vatting of five casks distilled in 1960. Like all Highland Park, the 50 year old has been cask-harmonised, that is to say, refilled into casks upon reaching maturity in order to ensure perfect balance and consistency.

To ensure the full impact of the rich, complex flavours that come from a lifetime of maturation, Highland Park 50 Year Old has been bottled at 44.8% abv.

Inspired by the elemental forces of Orkney, each bottle is hand-crafted from sterling silver and designed by Maeve Gillies, an internationally-renowned designer of engagement rings and bridal jewellery based in New York. Maeve is also a ‘Global Scot', a business ambassador for Scotland. Her design for Highland Park 50 Year Old celebrates Orkney; in particular the influence of the sea, wild weather and the passage of time.


Tasting Notes
Appearance:
Clear and bright with burnished mahogany hues.
Nose:
Complex and multi-layered; dusty wood and old tobacco pouch at first. Slowly the emphasis moves to fruit and spices; cooked damsons, raisins and nutmeg are all prevalent.
Palate:
At full strength, it is rich and spicy with excellent tannins and notes of muscovado sugar to the fore with a hint of wax. When reduced, orange peel, camphor and cloves emerge.
Finish:
Long and very spicy, slightly smoky remnants.

£10,000.00 (Size 70cl 44.8% ABV)

Another stunning packaging job for this limited release of fifty-year-old Highland Park 1960, featuring a sterling silver abstract 'cage' around the bottle by Scottish artist Maeve Gillies and a natural-look wooden box. The official tasting notes suggest a sherry influence on this, with tobacco, raisins and cooked fruit.

Og så kan kassen jo bruges til fuglene bagefter, der skal blot sættes en pind på under hullet ;)

Det var den bedste whisky i min bog i 2010 og stadig på min top tre.
