When it comes to whisky, Highland Park is one of Speyside's most coveted drops, and collectors and imbibers the world over are devoted fans of the delicious single malt for its rich and smooth palate, whichever the age statement. Here, however, is something truly special.\r\n\r\nThe Highland Park 50 Year Old is the oldest release for the company in eight years. Limited to only 274 bottles, this particular single malt whisky was discovered in the back of a warehouse in 2008, where it had sat since 1964. Drawn from two ex-Sherry hogshead casks which were then combined and married, a small amount of Highland Park\u2019s 50-year-old release from 2010 was then added, then left to age another eight years. This particular expression was bottled at 42.5 percent, with each bottle signed and numbered by Highland Park\u2019s Master Distiller, Max McFarlane.\r\n\r\nThe final liquid has been non-chill-filtered, and is of course\u00a0free of any artificial colours, keeping this tasty dram\u00a0completely original and unadulterated (is there any other way?). The flavour is described as being: \u201cSweet at first, with notes of ripe black cherries and muscovado sugar, giving way to dried autumn fruits and warm, toasted wood.\u201d\r\n\r\nHighland Park 50 Year Old comes nestled in an oak box made by Scottish Designer and master craftsman John Galvin, with a crystal decanter and a leather book that chronicles the extremely old whisky\u2019s development. Such a presentation is necessary, considering the investment you\u2019ll be asked to make for a bottle of your own\u2014this bad boy is priced at USD$15,000 a bottle.\r\n\r\nYowsers.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
