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. 

Originally a travel retail exclusive, this release from Highland Park’s Warrior Series is named after one of the heroes of Norse mythology. Sigurd has been matured in mostly European oak casks giving it a really warm Highland Park signature taste.

guest,
This is a good whiskey to have in your collection. Nose: doesn’t have much of a scent. Palate: I did get a little sweet taste with a bit of woodiness. It’s a mild smokey with a hint of wood notes finish.
