Highland Park Earl Haakon 18 Year Old
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 Inga Saga trilogy from Highland Park was introduced in 2009 with the release of the Earl Magnus. This is an 18 year old, Earl Haakon, completed the trilogy in 2011, following on from the Saint Magnus release the previous year.
The original two bottlings in the Magnus collection celebrated the influential 11th century Earl who was canonised 20 years after his untimely death. He was murdered by Haakon, his treacherous cousin, who's infamy was celebrated with this third and final release.
