Highland Park 50yo

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Highland Park 1997If you thought the Highland Park 40yo was old (and expensive), think twice. The distillery announced a new Highland Park 50yo, the oldest bottling ever. In fact, not many distilleries can claim such old whisky in their core range. Expected in a few months.

Other news: there’s a new Highland Park 1997 vintage, sherry matured and available only at German duty free shops. As far as I know, the first vintage in the new bottle design? Around € 45.

  • sjoerd972: The looking around tip is great. Prices vary hugely. I made the mistake last year of buying one for £ 90, while I could have had it for about € 80
