Sample 3 Scotch whiskeys this month

By Dionysus
Translated by Ann Lee


Highland Park Single Malt Whiskey

Highland Park Single Malt is a Scotch whiskey distilled in the Orkney Islands, at the northernmost distillery in Scotland. Founded in 1798, it has more than 200 years of history and benefits from the fact that it has an extraordinary climate advantage with its long-term cool maturation, using locally-cut aromatic peat and traditional fermenting techniques. This and Highland Park distillery's special attention to detail has won it great reviews and rankings among the market's other top liquors. Head of Education and Highland Park brand ambassador Gerry Tosh has a sharp sense of smell and can tell which year the whiskey is from with one whiff alone. He is now making a special trip to Taiwan and invites everyone to savor the fine textures of this whiskey with him.
