Bought – about 2000 from an online source I can’t remember.
Highland Park has always been a family favourite, so it was an obvious present option at the start of the millenium when uncles began reaching 90th birthdays. I found this particular ‘rare’ batch online for £40, which seemed very reasonable 12 years ago. Whisky reviews were in short supply back then so it was a bit of a shot-in-the-dark. Thankfully it hit the bullseye and is a very nice tipple. I recently saw a bottle from the same cask (but with a more fancy label) go for £100 at auction. It’s a shame I’d not invested in a Macallan or I could have been swapping it for a Ferrari by now! Thankfully I didn’t buy this bottle as an alternative to a pension plan. It’s better for sipping than selling!
Ratings – none that I’ve found but it’s VERY nice in my opinion.
