This whiskey’s value cannot be defined by age alone but by the richness of character, the complexity of flavor and intense balance that fifty years of quiet maturation in our most northerly warehouse brings.
Our 2018 batch of Highland Park 50 Year Old was hand bottled from just two Spanish oak, sherry seasoned, hogshead casks. First filled in 1964, these casks lay undisturbed until 2008 when they were first sampled and discovered to be of astonishing quality. In January 2010, we married the two casks together, introducing a little of the 1960 vintage from our earlier batch of 50 Year Old, before returning the newly married whiskey to its hogsheads and leaving it to harmonize for a further eight years.
