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 Orkney Islands. 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.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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).
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
