Is This The Ultimate Chaser?

For their whisky, Highland Park slowly malts its barley on the stone floor, turning it by hand for a more balanced flavour. Following this, it is smoked over local hand-cut peat from Hobbister Moor to bring a unique fragrant heather character to the whisky. Then it is placed in sherry oak casks from Spain, which impart a natural colour and flavour, and left to age for 12 years.

Tasting Note: A glowing amber colour. On the nose a heather honey sweetness and peaty smokiness followed by some fruit notes – pineapple/apple/pear. On the palate a rounded, smoky sweetness and a full malt flavour, leaving a gentle smoky feeling with a long, lingering finish.

“The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky” – Michael Jackson, Malt Whisky Companion.

Ola Dubh Reserve 12 (8%abv)

This Scottish beer is brewed using Highland Park  12yr Old single malt Scotch whisky casks to give a balanced, smooth and subtly smoky drink.

Tasting Note: A dark beer with a tan-coloured, espresso-like head and appetizing toasted cereal aromas. On the palate, dried fruit tart with orange oil, a suggestion of vanilla, some cocoa and hints of peat.

Surely this connection makes for the ultimate whisky/beer chaser!!
