The 2018 release 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, Highland Park married the two casks together, introducing a little of the 1960 vintage from the previous 50 Year Old, before returning the newly married whisky to its hogsheads and leaving it to harmonize for a further eight years.
Yielding just 274 bottles, this is an exquisitely rich whisky with sweet notes of ripe black cherries and Muscovado sugar giving way to dried autumn fruits and warm toasted wood. It delivers the merest hint of cedar wood, wrapped in Highland Park's signature light and peaty aromatic smoke.
Highland Park 50 Year Old is presented in a handcrafted oak box which houses both the whisky and a striking crystal decanter encased in polished silver-plated metal.
