A wee compairison of the same whisky

Halò Single Malt Mates,

Now we hae a label collectable. It seems Highland Park changed the label of the 18 year old expression. However the whisky has remained the same. According to the vendor that is. I gave me-self this new Highland Park for Nollaig.

Here is the auld expression:

Highland Park 18 Year Old (old bottling) (70cl, 43%)
(70 Reviews)

$122.27

Highland Park 18 (old) Bottling Note

A superb 18 year old from the Highland Park distillery and a winner of a Gold Medal at the 2005 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A profusion of ripe floral notes and fresh blossom with a delectable fruit salad. Notes of honeyed exotic fruits with a little botrytis.

Palate: Creamy and full with fruit conserves and espresso. A creaminess with cinnamon and allspice. Notes of toffee with thick black forest honey with a touch more citrus.

Finish: Long and well sugared with a herbal edge.

Here is the new expression:

Highland Park 18 Year Old – Viking Pride (70cl, 43%)

Highland Park 18yo Bottling Note

Highland Park’s 18 Year Old enjoyed a redesign in 2017, receiving livery inspired by the wood carvings from Urnes Stave Church and a new sub-name, “Viking Pride”. The Orkney single malt remains the same as before – rich, complex and supremely delicious.

So now we have another way to own collectables. By Vintage, by single cask, by the number of bottles, and now drum roll please by different label.
