A new find - old style Highland Park 12
Today I went out for a drive and came across a little liquor store that I had not seen before. Out of interested I went inside to see if they had any interesting whiskies and came across an old bottling of Highland Park 12. At first I thought it was the bottling released before the current flat bottle design (with the sunset label on the bottle) so I bought it as a nice drinking whisky. However, upon taking another look at home I realised that it is in fact not the bottling I thought it was. I believe this was the bottling prior to the sunset label.
Highland Park is a distillery that I have never paid much close attention to so unfortunately I do not know much about this bottle. Generally I find Highland Park whiskies to be nice but none particularly outstanding (I have tried the current 12, 15, 18, 25, 30 and the older style 12, 16 and 25 50.7%), my favorite being the old style 12 (sunset label) and the 25 50.7%. Is anyone able to give me any information on this bottling? I am particularly interested in the years that it was bottled, opinions on the quality of the whisky, and current value (I never sell whisky but do like to hold onto the more collectible ones for future drinking). This is a 1L bottle bottled at 43% and I paid NZ$100 for it (a little under 50 pounds).
