Ohio Division of Liquor Control Announces The Highland Park 'Heart of It All' Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The Ohio Department of Commerce - Division of Liquor Control has announced the limited availability of The Highland Park 'Heart of It All' selection, from cask #6574 beginning on April 2, 2019.

This product was matured in a refilled sherry Butt cask over 13 years in Orkney’s cool Northern climate and comes in at a whopping 63.2 ABV. For those wondering, Orkney is an archipelago off the northeastern coast of Scotland. The product is supposed to possess a golden color with flavors of cinnamon, cracked pepper, dried fruits, salted chocolate, and peat smoke.

Each retailer in Ohio has been allotted 6 bottles that will retail at $199.99 + tax. The list of stores where this will be available are listed at the bottom of this post. 

Our Take

Single malt Scotch isn't our favorite so we're going to sit this one out. However, it was fun getting to know about Highland Park and their process for creating their product. For instance, this is how they treat their casks:
It starts with trees - European and American oak - carefully selected and cut into staves at precisely 45° to make it hard for any spirit to escape.... 
We ship the staves to Jerez in southern Spain where they’re made into casks, filled with Oloroso Sherry and left to mature for around two years before being emptied and shipped back to Orkney to be refilled with our whisky. Expensive yes, but with casks contributing up to 80% of our whisky’s final flavour, and all of its natural colour, it’s worth every penny.
If you're a Scotch fan or collector, this might be a good opportunity to get a rare product that doesn't show up very often in Ohio.... but you better get there early if you want 1 of the 6 bottles allocated to each location.
