Highland Park has revealed its oldest whisky release in nearly a decade with their new 50 Year Old. The hand-bottled whisky was poured in 1964 in Orkney, Scotland and was found in two sherry-seasoned Spanish hogshead casks in 2008. The flavor is described to be "sweet at first, with notes of ripe black cherries and Muscovado sugar giving way to dried autumn fruits and warm, toasted wood. The hint of cedar wraps around Highland Park’s signature light peat smoke, giving way to a lingering finish."
It will also be packaged in a jaw-dropping crystal decanter, each one being individually handcrafted by Scotish master craftsman and designer, John Galvin. The decanter will be joined by a brown leather book that gives you a look at the development of the whisky.
Only 77 bottles will be available worldwide at select beverage retailers.
