220+ years – that’s how long Highland Park has been around. Which is an even more impressive stretch of time when you consider that the United States is only a little over 2-decades older than that. Now, to celebrate both that stretch of time and their founder, Magnus Eunson, the brand has released an new viking-inspired single malt scotch – aptly named MAGNUS.
Matured in American oak sherry-seasoned and bourbon casks, this smoky and slightly sweet single malt scotch whisky is a fitting homage to the father of the long-standing spirit brand. Add to it the fact that this liquor has flavor notes of lemon, vanilla, and caramelized pineapple (to name a few), it’s easy to see the passion and expertise that allowed Highland Park to thrive since 1798. And it doesn’t hurt that MAGNUS clocks in at a hearty ABV of 40%. Even better, you can get your hands on this special release for as low as $36 a bottle.
