This Highland Park 1991 is a vintage, limited edition whisky that was released exclusively for travel retail. It was matured in sherry casks that have imparted a beautiful sweetness on the liquid before being bottled in 2012. Subtle peat, gentle hibiscus and wild heather are obvious on the nose and they return on the palate to dance with sticky dates, chocolate raisins and toffee pudding before a long, lingering finish. It’s an incredibly accomplished dram and a fine example of what Highland Park are capable of.
As this is a collectible, limited edition single malt, quantities are limited.
