No looking back for this bottle as it escapes from (read: is cordially kidnapped by me) the confines of warehouses past. 🥃 I’ve posted a picture of this distillery-exclusive beauty before in its protective canvas bag-like sleeve, but decided it deserves to be fully unveiled. How scandalous. The Highland Park 18 is already revered to be one of the more refined 18-year offerings, so what do you say to a cask-strength single barrel version? 🥃 This guy sees maturation in a single American oak sherry butt and is then bottled without chill filtration or coloring at natural strength of 56.4%. It is one of 606 extant bottles from cask 2865. I generally don’t comment on color, but man is this a gorgeous drop without any makeup (aka E150a). You get to date it by hand and write your name on it (too bad I ruined the aesthetic with my chicken scratch). 🥃 I have still not dipped deep enough into this bottle to write a competent review, nor have I really been thinking about a review while I’ve drammed it so far. It’s one of those bottles that you just want to sit back and enjoy for awhile. But a review will come, fret not! 🥃 #scotch#whisky#whiskey#singlemalt#singlemaltscotch#highlandpark#hpvikingsoul#highlandpark18#orkney#kirkwall#travel#scotland#sherry#exclusive#whiskygram#whiskywednesday#whiskywithaview#whiskyphotography
Aujourd'hui j'ai enfin reçu le cadeau de Noël pour mon amoureux ! Méga surprise pour lui, étant fan inconditionnel de Motörhead il en rêvait pour rajouter a sa collection. J'suis impatiente de pouvoir lui offrir !!! 🤗 . 🎄🎁🎄 .
Saturday night with pre-prohibition era cocktails? Sounds like a good plan. Head over to #TheLittleEasy and sip on the Sazerac. It’s whiskey served with bitters and anise liqueur. We’re open till late 🙌🏼🥃 . Picture credits : @thefattymumbai ... Thank you for this beautiful click. We hope to see you soon 😃. . #TLEIndia#Mumbai#Speakeasy#Bar
