First-Class Northerner with a Spanish Soul

When you reach the northernmost point of the Scottish mainland, go even further and you’ll see the islands of Orkney – all seventy of them. On one of them, a son of Vikings started an illegal Whisky trade in 1798 and when Europe was bothered by Napoleon, Magnus Euson built a booze empire. On the very spot where Magnus had his tills, now stands a proud distillery called Highland Park. They produce premium Scotch that honors their horn-helmet ancestors and pushes the borders of swankiness. Four creative craftsmen capture the essence of the wind-battered North into amber drops, and we’re here to applaud.

The fourth installment of the Orcadian Vintages line comes with a surprise appearance of the Oloroso Sherry soul, and a hiatus from the traditional peat. Made from seventeen casks, sealed when The Who told us they won’t get fooled again, this exceptional expression aims to impress. The casks were carefully selected by the Maestro Max McFarlane and only 657 bottles of this potion were filled. The 1971 holds some of that typical 70s fruitiness and is nothing like anything else made by Highland Park.
