Winning bid: £680.00
Lot number: 065-3037

The most northerly of Scottish whisky distilleries, Highland Park was founded in 1798 and is one of the most highly regarded single malts in the world, the great Michael Jackson calling it, "The greatest all-rounder in the world of whisky." and Paul Pacult awarded it, "The Best Spirit in the World." in 2005. The unique peat of Orkney gives the whisky a distinctive heathery sweetness.

This is one of a duo of single cask 1973 vintage Sherry-casked Highland Parks (the other being cask 11167) which were filled on the same date and aged for the same period, but which emerged radically different 28 years later.
