Highland Park is the northern most distillery in Scotland. It's a whole half mile north of Scapa. As you would expect from a whiskey from the Orkney Islands, it has a strong taste of peat and the sea. Highland Park sells whisky up to 40 years old, if you can afford it (it sells for over $5,000). It is one of the few distilleries that still has a traditional malting floor where they turn each batch by hand.
The parent company, Edrington, also produces Famous Grouse, Cutty Sark and The Macallan.
Color: Rich deep amber
Nose: Strong peat
Palate: Very smooth
Finish: Warm and satisfying
I like this whiskey a lot. I find myself grabbing the bottle and pouring a couple of fingers when I want a relaxing moment in the evening. I think you'll like it too.
