Subject: RE: BS: Question about Scotch
I have a bottle of Highland Park 12-year-old and one of the Shieldaig Highland Finest Old to compare. They overall have very similar characteristics. I would say that there are a couple of more detectable notes in the Highland Park, it has a kind of honey or vanilla finish and not quite as much smoke as in the Shieldaig. But at half the price of Highland Park, the Sheildaig Highland is a very good close second.
I think you can mail order from this place, though I am not sure if it is just wine or if they also send spirits. I suppose I could work out something if someone in the U.S. wants me to make a run and mail something you can't get. There are under 100 stores around the U.S. It might make a nice field trip! I like the variety of wine these folks carry, they have some of the varieties that my grocery store doesn't usually carry and the smaller liquor stores might have a single sample of.
