Half a century old nectar from the North.

Hours north of the center of the Scotch universe, at the edge of the world, there’s the Highland Park distillery, battered by every possible element, standing where Magnus Euson, son of the Vikings, started his Whisky bootlegging empire. More than two hundred years of history and tradition is now bottled in rich expressions of Scotch, revering the Norse mythology. Four craftsmen (a carpenter, a boat builder, a musician, and an artist) make sure the mythical character of the North is captured in the golden Spirit.

Now, behold this outstanding rarity, a ridiculously limited release (only 274 bottles) that was put to rest in 1964, which is basically a different dimension now. The Highland Park team discovered two Sherry-seasoned Spanish oak hogshead casks in 2008, snuggly tucked away in one of their warehouses. They tasted the contents and realized they found a real treasure.

After half a century, they married the Spirits and left them united for another eight years. The sumptuous liquid is presented in an elegant embossed bottle and a lovely oak box, both designed by Scottish craftsmen. The Whisky is precious and its natural ruby color hides sweet and fruity flavors with some signature peat smoke. This is the most extravagant king of the North.

Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Hobbister Moor is a landmark in Scotland famous for its peat. Because there are no trees on the land to blend in the peat, it has a slightly lighter aroma.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
