Two new Highland Park vintages (1964, 1968)September 17th, 2009
This fall, Highland Park will be introducing two new vintage: 1964 and 1968. This is the beginning of ONGOING Highland Park vintage releases (not in any sequential vintage order).
I have the details on both, which I’m including below.
Consists of only two casks, refill hogsheads. Bottled at 42.3%. 290 bottles. Price: £3,750
Consists of eight refill casks (7 hogsheads, 1 sherry butt). Bottled at 45.8%. 1550 bottles. Price: £2,250
As of now, the 1964 vintage will NOT becoming to the U.S. Both of these whiskies will be available for tasting at the Charity table at WhiskyFest New York in November, for a small donation to charity.
There will also be a 50 year old Highland Park released in 2010. This, too, will be an ongoing release, not a one-time deal. (I believe that will be the only ongoing 50 year old release that I know about.)
