Highland Park have changed the label on the 25yo to the stylee of the 12yo and 18yo. Yugh!
It just looks like the 12 yo £24.99 version, the numbers 1 and 2 replaced with the numbers 2 and 5.
This is a Justice of Travisty!
If I'm spending my hard earned cash on 25yo £130 bottle, both I and my guest need to know its the 'mutts nuts'
You dont buy a GTI Golf, just for it to ahve the letters CL on the back of it. If I pay £130 for the kiddie of Island malts, I want it to look £130, not £25!
I love Highland Park, love it, but the new packaging has sickened me. Fancy taking one of the greatest whiskies in the world and dressing it up like a cheap tesco blend. Disgusting!
Come on Highland Park what was the reasoning for this abomination - other than to save a few pennies! I defy anyone to claim they prefer the new pishy labels and packaging to the old one!!!!!!!!!!
And yes I know this is all about whats inside the bottle that counts - but love affairs NEVER start on personality alone LOOKS are the all important.
I hope HP sales drop and they are forced to resume the wonderful packaging they had before!!!
Thank you for your comments.
The label, the box, the colour all go to make a complete 'story' of a whisky.
The packaging goes up to complete that story.
As Argyll says, it looks like a supermarket whisky. In fact, the own make Aldi whisky (at £11 for a Highland Single) looks a load better.
Yes the final thing that must be noted is whats inside the bottle, but how many of you drink from mucky tea mugs or swig from the bottle........
....not many, so the label is just as important
