From the most northerly distillery in the World.

Situated on the island of Orkney to the west of Kirkwall, HIghland Park is the most northerly distillery in the World. It was founded by Magnus Eunson in the late 18th century,  one of many Orcadian smugglers and illicit Whisky producers who rebelled against the heavy excise duties imposed to finance the war with Napoleon. It is said that he used his position as church officer to conceal Whisky beneath the church pulpit.

The distillery was licensed in 1826 by Robert Borwick, whose son-in-law, the local Exciseman John Robertson, is generally credited with routing out the smugglers. Highland Park is one of the few distilleries to use hard water. Also unusual is the use of traditional floor maltings for germinating the barley, which is then dried over a fire of local aromatic heather peat. This is the source of the heathery smokiness that is characteristic of Highland Park Whiskies. 

Highland Park 25 Year Old is matured using a high proportion of first-fill Sherry casks, which not only impart a wonderful richness, but also an intensely dark and full-bodied flavour profile. It was named the "Best Spirit in the World 2013" in the International Spirits Journal.

Therese,
That is a darn good whisky. Not quite the state of ecstasy that Highland Park 40 induces, but solid, and much cheaper.

An explosion of flavours like the roughness of the island. In the beginnjng all's quiet and well, and after a while you will taste an explosion of flavours.

Stunning expression. I prefer the 25 YO over the 30 YO. My favorite single malt during the autumn months.
