Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 58.1%
It's great to see top quality cask strength Highland Park from independent bottlers, especially at this age and from Gordon & MacPhail, who know a thing or two about this distillery having bottled some absolute classics in the past.
This particular G&M Highland Park is from a refill sherry butt of the 2002 vintage and clocks in at a hearty 58.1% despite 18 years of maturation, all of which sounds extremely promising and, as ever with Gordon & MacPhail, it's terrific value.
