This is what you get for your £10,000!
Well, I suppose you will now want a few tasting notes to help you make the most of your outlay.
Clear and bright with burnished mahogany hues.
Complex and multi-layered; dusty wood and old tobacco pouch at first. Slowly the emphasis moves to fruit and spices; cooked damsons, raisins and nutmeg are all prevalent.
At full strength, it is rich and spicy with excellent tannins and notes of muscovado sugar to the fore with a hint of wax. When reduced, orange peel, camphor and cloves emerge.
Long and very spicy, slightly smoky remnants.
In these hard times, I suggest that as an economy measure you mix your bottle of Highland Park 50 Year Old Whisky with a litre bottle of Firey Irn Bru.
