Highland Park Ambassador Cask #3 33 Year Old 35cl
Lot number: 0580311
Winning bid: £135
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.
Ambassador Cask 3 - Number 9035
The first two Ambassador Casks sold out very quickly in 2006; as a result, Highland Park released a third, chosen by Gerry Tosh, in November 2007.
Gerry likes the finer whiskies in life but, as with most people, sometimes finds it too expensive to buy a 30 year old. That is why Ambassadors Cask 3 moved to a smaller bottle (35cl) so that more people can have the opportunity to taste this special 33 year old single cask at cask strength of 44.8% abv.
Cask #9035 (from 1974) was one of five initially under consideration before finally being selected. Gerry picked this cask for its big chocolate nose and the lingering aftertaste of dried fruits.
Aged: 33 Years Old
