If normal Highland Park is a 10, then this Single Malt turns it up to 11.

Highland Park is the most northerly distillery in Scotland on the island of Orkney. Legend has it that it was founded by Whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson in the late 1700s and that he used his position as a church officer to conceal Whisky beneath the church pulpit. Don’t assume that “Highland Park” means their Whisky is made in the Highland style. In character, their spirit is closer to a midpoint between Lowland and Islay Single Malts. Perhaps the most famous Whiskey connoisseur of all time — journalist Michael Jackson — called Highland Park, “The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky.”

We have to say right from the start that we were immediately taken by the box — depicting to stacked guitar amplifiers. Highland Park Full Volume was developed in partnership with Saul Davies — music producer and guitarist for the band James. Where Highland Park Single Malts normally have a Sherry Cask influence, 481 first-fill ex-Bourbon casks were filled with Highland Park Single Malt in 1999. They bottled it up this year (2017) at 47.2% ABV, so the flavors are complex, strong, and… delivered at full volume without the static of artificial additives.

It's all about catching a balance when it comes to making music... Making Whisky is no different. It's art...

Smartass Corner:
Highland Park Whiskies are not Highland-style Single Malts even though they have “Highland” in their name. Highland Park gets its name for a city district on the island of Orkney.

Ratings & Reviews
Highland park has quickly climbed the ranks of my favorite brands. This one in particular I didn’t find to amazing upon first opening, though it was smooth enough to note it. Having it again a few weeks after initially opening it though, I Love it! It’s Smokey, smooth, slightly sweet and has a good vanilla presence.
Definitely a highland park flavor profile. A bit strong at first, but after letting it open up the flavors balanced out out much better with more flavorful sweet notes (vanillins mostly).
Really smooth. Moderate peat that fades quickly into a nice fruity, almost pear flavor profile. Vanilla and hints of oak follow. Would make a great introduction to a newbie for high-end whisky
So first off I am spey, highlands guy by default but this played well and is a great compromise. It is light pleasant and the smoke is not overwhelming. Good mouth but not long lasting which some will ding, I am fine with it. As I said the vanilla and the smoke go well together. IF you want big smoke or peat not for you. If you are new to the low lands good starting point. Only thing missing is a longer finish, but it is just fine. A pretty darn enjoyable 17 year old competes with well with the 18..
Well balanced. Plenty of smoke and vanilla. Brine and some light peat breaks through the sweet vanilla pod flavors. The bourbon barrels definitely shine through with a bit of char and sweetness. Nice medium-long warm finish. French vanilla and almonds and a dry palate after the finish cools down. Grapefruit and mint appeared after the dram opened up (15-20 minutes after initial sip). All in all a good quality scotch for the $75-80 price range. Once again Highland Park leaves me with an enjoyable and great tasting experience.
Really delicious scotch. Typical Highland Park undertones (light peat, brine, fruit finish) but with a very distinct pineapple and other citrus on the palate and finish. Also, a fantastic value for a near 18-year Scotch. It's technically NAS, but they give you enough info on the bottle to calculate that this is more or less an 18-year. Highly recommend. Lives up to the Highland Park reputation. Not as good as the pure 18-year IMO, but fantastic in its own right, especially for the price.
Underwhelming. Expensive for what it is.
A fine balance of flavors, nothing powers it’s way through. Easy drinking is a way of saying well-made, but also a way of saying it’s hard to know what makes it memorable. A solid 8.
Although it says Full Volume, but it’s short in the mouth. It’s Vanilla, and it’s Smokey. That’s about it. Great first sip but lacks complexity and layers.
