Highland Park 12 Year Old + 50ml of Highland Park 18 Isle of Orkney Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750m+50ml)

SKU #1653369

A great package - HP 12 with a 50ml rider of HP 18 all at the regular price of the 12 year! Highland Park, one of only two distilleries in the Orkney Isles, is the world's most northerly whisky distillery. It was founded in 1798 by Magnus Euson. Until it was licensed in 1825, its production was illicit and Euson was assisted in evading the excisemen by a kinsman who was a Kirk elder, and hid the contraband under the pulpit. By the 1880s, Highland Park had an established reputation and at one time both the King of Denmark and the Emperor of Russia declared it to be the finest whisky they had ever tasted. Highland Park has been described as the greatest all-rounder in the world of malt whisky. Its product retains much that is traditional, even original. It has its own floor maltings and peat beds and two traditional peat-fired kilns. Many believe the unique character of Highland Park comes from the local peat beds which have absorbed the salt spray of centuries and which impart a rooty, heathery quality to the whisky. Only a carefully measured amount is used to fire the kiln for each malting. Oak casks are then used for the maturation process. As a single malt, Highland Park matures superbly. In blends, it is said to be a catalyst, bringing its best to other malts.

We are always fighting to get the best deals on quality spirits from around the world. On rare occasion the packaging of a given bottled does actually add value. While normally the "value added pack" or VAP that is so common to convenience store shelves is just a bottle with a branded glass or other low quality gimmick, in this instance it really delivers something extra for the same price. Here we have the classic Highland Park 12 Year Old packaged with a 50ml rider of Highland Park 18 at no extra charge! Tough to go wrong there. Whether the 12 is already a staple for you or you're trying it for the first time, this is a great opportunity to snag a pour of the finest Orkney has to offer. The 12 itself is a beautiful mix of malt, salt, and peat. The far northern Island of Orkney is famous for the saline influence on the malts and of course for its heather peat - quite different from the peat of mainland Scotland or Islay. The floral smoke component is delicately balanced by honey and sweet fruit and gobs of malt. It's all set off with just a kiss of salt. The sherry cask aging is phenomenally well managed and while the 12 certainly isn't a bomb of any type, it iss balanced and weighty thanks to the cask influence. If you haven't tried the 18, it amps everything up. While I don't regularly drink $180 bottles of Scotch, I'll never turn down a free pour of quality malt and that is what we have here thanks to the VAP package at the same price as the 12 alone.
