Highland Park Introduces A 50-Year-Old Single Malt

The extremely limited release features Scotch whisky first barreled in 1968 and then finished in Sherry casks.

Highland Park, part of the Edrington portfolio, has unveiled a new ultraluxury single malt. The 43.8% abv Highland Park 50-year-old ($30,000 a 750-ml.) was selected from nine refill casks originally laid down in 1968, married together in 2008, then re-racked into a handful of first-fill Sherry seasoned oak casks. Then, after a further 12 years of maturation, one of these limited casks was selected and married with a small quantity of the whisky from the last 50-year-old released by the Orkney-based distillery. Highland Park 50-year-old is an extremely limited release of 274 bottles each signed by master whisky maker Gordon Motion. For more information, visit Highlandparkwhisky.com.
