The easy sipper worthy of a king’s name.

Highland Park is the most northerly distillery in Scotland. Legend has it that it was founded by Whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson in the late 18th century. It is said that he used his position as church officer to conceal Whisky beneath the church pulpit.

Don’t think that “Highland Park” means “Highland” Whisky. Highland Park gets its name for a city district on the island of Orkney. In style, it is closer to a midpoint between Lowland and Islay single malts. Perhaps the most famous Whisky connoisseur of all time—journalist Michael Jackson—called Highland Park, “The greatest all-rounder in the world of malt Whisky.”

Highland Park Harald was another in their “Warrior Series” of travel retail special editions. That means it is a full 1L bottle named after Harald Fairhair, the Norwegian king who established Orkney as an earldom. The Whisky that bears his name is aged in a mix of American and European oak casks and — in the classic Highland Park style — the malt is lightly dried over peat. So this Whisky is lighter with a citrus / grassy character and just a wisp of smoke on the tail.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
The 'Valhalla' range of Highland Park is named after the Norse mythological gods.
