Highland Park, 8 Year Old (bottled 1970s)

RRP £850

In the past century, whisky ranges would often start with a young expression, and Highland Park was no exception. This was bottled in the 1960s as an eight-year-old and is full of character. It has the typical Highland Park smokiness but also a vegetal edge in the form of artichokes. Richer flavours of baked apples come through on the palate, along with slightly overcooked apple crumble on which the fruit has started to caramelise.
