Default Old Malt Cask - Highland Park Distillery

DGenerate and I did a lil swap a while back. I got scotch. mmmmm

One of the things he sent was a 200ml advance sample of this 12 year old new release. Distilled in June of 1994 and this and one more glass till its gone.

A pretty darn good scotch. High in peat, and crisp with nice aftertaste. Eash to savor and relatively light bodied.

All in all a goodie. Wonder what it will/does cost and if they will import it here.

Sounds good.

Highland Park is a great Scotch, full of flavour.

Are there any details about how they aged it (sherry vs bourbon casks) or what percentage it was bottled at.

Enjoy your drink.

Drinking it while smoking a party 150th robusto. Pretty darn fine match. Cigar seems to really mellow out the scotch. Scotch seems to bring out flavors in the cigar.
