You can get in on the ground floor with a first edition cask strength Highland Park Single Malt.

Highland Park is the most northerly distillery in Scotland on the island of Orkney. Legend has it that it was founded by Whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson in the late 1700s and that he used his position as a church officer to conceal Whisky beneath the church pulpit. Don’t assume that "Highland Park" means their Whisky is made in the Highland style. In character, their Spirit is closer to a midpoint between Lowland and Islay Single Malts. Perhaps the most famous Whisky connoisseur of all time — journalist Michael Jackson — called Highland Park, "The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky."

Some folks spend their days dreaming of getting in on the ground floor of the latest tech startup. Sure, that’d be great. But today’s cutting edge tech is just as likely to be tomorrow’s has-been. We think getting in on the first edition release of a classic Single Malt from a place that’s been making it for more than two hundred years is as close to a sure thing as you can get. Highland Park Cask Strength Release No. 1 is the classic Single Malt that has won raving fans and Golden awards year after year. It is aged predominantly in American ex-Sherry casks and delivered at a full cask strength of 63.3% ABV for the very first time. It’s poured into the bottles straight from the casks without chill-filtering or colorings.

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).

Best Dram and now I'm a Fan of Highland Park,

Patrick,
Everything you wish the classic 12yo Highland park would deliver, but more of it. Does not drink like an older dram, just stronger, thicker mouth feel, easier to find that smoke & the floral & toffee notes. A definite pleasure & for anyone who has loved other highland parks in the past, a must to own & enjoy!

Jonathan,
I thoroughly enjoyed this. Plenty of heat up front. Then an amazing floral note. Not overly peated! Then toffee, vanilla, fruit. A TINY bit of water opens it up nicely. This is a lovely dram. This one changed the game for me. Cheers!

Gregory,
I agree this is INTENSE as is. Peat is medium. Some caramel. Without water it is a bit much. But just a few drops of water opens it up. More water then that and it just loses too much of it very attractive character. Value, about right.

Daniel,
