Highland Park 1973 Dragon
A legendary Highland Park, distilled in 1973 and bottled by Robertson of Kirkwall.
Highland Park was built by David Robertson all the way back in 1798. The distillery's relationship with blenders, Robertson & Baxter, saw it acquired by Highland Distillers in 1937, who were subsequently bought by Edrington in 1999, who run it today. The modern Highland Park single malt brand was first officially bottled in the 1970s, with the release of an 8 year old age statement, but distillery bottlings first appeared around the 1950s. The look of the brand has changed many times over the years, but its cult following and popularity has never diminished. It remains one of the most recognisable single malts in the world to this day.
The 1973 Dragon rarely appears at auction, these Robertson's of Kirkwall bottlings are very highly regarded.
The Dragon from which this whisky takes its name comes from the 12th century carving in Maes Howe neolithic tomb, Orkney.
Bottled at 20 years old from cask #13313, in a 75cl bottle with green capsule.
