Education / Fun

The Highland Park New Make Spirit I got from Steve is for now the first in line to win the Whisky Nerd Award 2017. This is mostly due to the educational value and fun I had interacting with both Steve and Highland Park in trying to land this new make!

Bribe

The best bribe attempt was made by Typhoon Hospitality from Amsterdam that send me the Fire Edition Samples. They represent Highland Park in the Netherlands.

Taste

On the taste points the first in line till now is the Port Charlotte LaddieMP5 virgin oak that totally blew me away!

More updates will follow later in the year as I am sure the educational level and taste points for all the Octomore’s will bump the score on those drams!
