Scotch - Single Malt
Highland Park 25yr Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This score falls in the 98th percentile of all spirits in the Whiskey category and is an example of the very best in its class.
The Highland Park 25yr was first released in 1998 and spends half of its maturation time in sherry casks. It is an extremely venerable and respect scotch.
The 2013 Beverage Testing Institute called it a "stunningly flavorful and resonant whisky."
About the Producer:
Highland Park Distillery was founded as far back as 1798 and was used primarily for scotch blends until marketing single malts in Highland Park is a distillery devoted to the tradition of scotch making and marks its founding all the way back to 1798. They credit the illicit founding to smuggler Magnus Eunson; the official founding of Highland park from a bureaucratic standpoint was in 1811 by Robert Borwick. Its whiskies were primarily used (and highly sought-after) for blends until 1997 and 1998 when single-malt expressions were greeted with enthusiasm.
