Highland Park Lunar Bottling 1988 18 3/5 Year Old
A 1988 vintage Highland Park which was matured for precisely 18 3/5 years and limited to only 500 bottles.
With their standard 18 year old expression being dubbed 'The Best Spirit in the World' by F. Paul Pacult in 2005, this release is said to the same whisky but turned up a notch. A greater proportion of sherry oak casks were used in maturation and it was bottled at a slightly higher strength, creating a malt which is even more robust and full-bodied.
This bottling celebrates the completion of the Moon's full cycle, which only happens every 18 3/5 years, and is best observed from Orkney's Ring of Brodgar.
