Highland Park 18 Year Old

£140.00

Known as 'Viking Pride', Highland Park 18 Year Old is a rich, full bodied and characteristically sweet and smoky expression from the Orkney distillery.

Quantity

For their 18 Year Old expression, Highland Park use a high proportion of first fill sherry seasoned oak casks (up to 60% of the cask selection). Peat comes from Hobbister Moor on Orkney, while the malted barley is turned by hand on the distillery's traditional malting floor, and maturation takes place on the island.

Highland Park's tasting notes: "... deliciously sophisticated medley of ripe cherries dusted with bittersweet cocoa, freshly harvested honeycomb and candied orange peel; you'll detect a whisper of Orkney's salty sea spray in the lingering aromatic peat smoke."
