Highland Park whisky, like island home, is shaped by a wild climate and stormy seas, and by the Vikings who settled here over 1,000 years ago, leaving their mark on the people and the culture.
Just over 30 years ago, Highland Park's master distiller decided to lay down the casks that would go on to become the heart of this incredible whisky and over these three decades, the results are simply staggering! Another complex beast with gentle smoke notes combining wonderfully with lighter sweeter flavours. A whisky which has won many an award and sits at the top of many connoisseurs wish lists!
Maturation in refill Sherry seasoned casks prevents oak from dominating the flavours of the whisky as it would if first-fill casks were used. This allows the robust and oily new make spirit to gently mature over an extended period of time, delivering a full-on aromatic peat flavour with a surprisingly sweet finish.
