For this review it's our second time we take a journey to the Orkney Islands to review a Highland Park Scotch whisky. The last time was Dark Origins, but this time we are reviewing Full Volume.
Full Volume is an homage to a musicians mixing board, setting the right tones to make a pleasurable listening experience. This is supposed to be Highland Park's head distiller, Gordon Motion's masterpiece that showcases using the right ingredients to pull off a fully complex whisky (Balancing the right amount of sweet, with peat, and floral notes etc...) for our tasting pleasure.
Full Volume was distilled in 1999 and bottled in 2017. Rather than using an age statement, they wanted you to focus on the story that makes up Full Volume.
So with a name like this, is it worthy of a Spinal Tap reference of being turned up to 11? Watch the video to find out.
2 minute whiskey review of Highland Park Full Volume:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
