Highland Park Lunar Whisky

Highland Park Lunar WhiskySo we just found out that the good folks over at Highland Park whisky have released a lunar whisky. At first we hoped that meant it was distilled on the moon, but then we realized that would make for a pretty high price tag - plus it's probably kind of tough to find peat and barley up there. Then we realized the lunar thing referred to the the cycles of the moon, waxing and waning and whatnot, we suppose. All we can tell you is if we drink enough whisky we've been known to howl at that big bright bastard floating in the sky. Pick up a bottle for around $132 if that's your thing, man.

(The) Lunar Bottling was done in honor of the first Lunar Nutation of the 21st century. The moon has two cycles, the monthly was and wane and this larger cycle. The moon will not return to this point again until 2025. The whisky was matured in 40% first fill sherry oak casks and bottled at 45.1% abv. The tasting profile describes it as having a toffee sweetness and a smoky finish.
