FF: Highland Park Single Malt Whiskey

highIf you want something truly special for yourself or the whiskey enthusiast in your life – then look no further than the truly authentic and ultra-smooth Highland Park Single Malt Whiskey.

About Highland Park Single Malt Whiskey: “Highland Park is one of only a handful of distilleries that still retains a traditional malting floor, turning each batch of malt by hand, in what is a physically demanding process. To malt our barley, we steep it in the mineral rich water from the Crantit spring, before transferring it to the malting floor to slowly germinate. When it is ready, the barley is then placed in our kilns where the aromatic peating process begins. One of the fundamental flavours in Highland Park single malt whisky is the delicate, sweet, aromatic peat smoke, which has given Highland Park its unique character since 1798. The Orkney Islands have an abundance of this sweet, heathery peat, which is around 4000 years old and is carefully selected from Hobbister Moor.”

FF: Kentucky Owl – “The Wise Man’s Bourbon”

KOWLOn our radar is set on following Kentucky Owl – billed as – “The Wise Man’s Bourbon” – which is due to make its debut soon.

The fine folks at Kentucky Owl are actually not really introducing their bourbon as much as reintroducing it. The new Kentucky Owl is the resurrection of a legendary bourbon that dates way back to 1879.

The new Kentucky Owl already has a reputation as one of the finest bourbons being made today and we can’t wait to get our hands on a bottle.
