This first batch of Highland Park comes complete with a very special label... Back in September we launched That Boutique-y Whisky Company with a masterclass at Maltstock, the fantastic whisky weekend held just south of Nijmegen each year. This label features those who attended the masterclass but moreover voted to decide the final contents of this Highland Park release we now proudly present to you!
As ever, there is more to it than that as our veritable palatium of whisky pals are joined by the ghost of Charlemagne himself! Down in the woods in Overasselt pieces of clothing are still tied to the tree beside the ruins to bring luck and cure disease, a tradition that dates right back to the days of the Frankish Kingdom and the Holy Roman Empire. Charlemagne is getting in on the act by tossing his knickers up into the tree!
Batch 1 is a release of 241 numbered bottles and the back label has a photo key identifying everybody who is featured.
‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains, bourbons, blended malts and blends from a variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic-novel-style labels.
Nose: A complex nose that is initially quite floral gives way to creamy beeswax, salted butter and oranges. There is a balsamic note as well as dried red currants and a hint of leather. Add just a little water and the characteristic heather smoke comes to the fore along with a little coriander and manuka honey.
Palate: Nutty fruitcake and a little dark chocolate intermingle with oak and some more malty, hoppy notes.
Finish: A soft oak finish with gentle smoke and hints of jasmine.
