A Whisky Flight Tasting for the Harry Potters among us!

Are you intrigued by mystique, legend and the forbidden? We highly recommend you give these potions a try. Unique character and exciting history is to be found in each label.

Highland Park Dark Origins:

Highland Park Dark Origins is a new core bottling that celebrates the early days of Magnus Eunson’s illicit distilling on Orkney, back before the distillery was even founded in 1798. Magnus worked as a butcher and church official by day, but by night he was a legendary whisky smuggler and distiller outwitting the exciseman.

To honour their hero (the Batman of the Orkney Islands, if you will), Highland Park have created a whisky with a suitably ‘dark’ character. Using 80% first-fill Sherry casks (20% refill) – 60% are first-fill European oak, with 20% being first-fill American oak – an exciting, spicy, chocolatey whisky has been produced.

Jura Prophecy: 

A very peated edition from Isle of Jura, Prophecy is made from a selection of old and rare Jura whiskies. Very interesting indeed.

Ardbeg Corryvreckan:

Malt Advocate’s Top Whisky of the Year for 2009!

This is one of the legendary Islay malts. We loved the Committee release and we weren’t disappointed with this incredible dram. This was released to replace Airigh Nam Beist, choosing a more medicinal style over the creamier style of the beastie.

OCTOMORE07.4/ 167 PPM VIRGIN OAK:

THE LATEST RADICAL EXPRESSION, 07.4, WAS DISTILLED FROM BARLEY PEATED TO 167PPM AND MATURED IN VIRGIN OAK. A FIRST FOR OCTOMORE.

For seven years, head distiller Adam Hannett carefully managed the heavyweight flavour profiles in play during the development of this uber-experimental dram – and he has now released just 12,000 bottles at 61.2% vol.
