Highland Park 50 Year Old

Scotch brand Highland Park unveiled its third 50-year-old whisky last month, following similar batches in 2018 and 2010.

Limited to 274 bottles, the new Highland Park 50 Year Old (43.8% ABV) is made from nine refill casks laid down in 1968. The casks were combined in 2008 and re-racked into first-fill Sherry-seasoned casks.

The bottlings were created using the traditional solera system, which takes a small quantity of whisky produced from a previous batch and marries it together with the new liquid.

After 12 years of maturation, one cask was chosen and a small quantity of the last 50-year-old from the distillery was added.
