An exceptional seventeen year old Single Malt with a deep Sherry influence and a bit of northern smoke.

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 Whisky connoisseur of all time — journalist Michael Jackson — called Highland Park, “The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky.”

We don’t talk about packaging so much, but Highland Park The Dark 17 Year Old comes in a gorgeous black-glass bottle. What’s inside is classic Highland Park’s lightly smoked Single Malt aged for a full seventeen years in ex-Sherry casks. It’s really simple math… superior Single Malt spirit, super-premium casks, lots and lots of time well-spent, and bottled strong at 52.9% ABV. And it’s a truly limited edition, with only 28,000 bottles produced — which might sound like a lot, but there is a clamoring world-wide fan base chomping at the bit to get their hands on a bottle for themselves.

Ratings & Reviews
Steve
Steve,
This one is quickly moving towards a favorite for me. Strong and smoky on the tongue, but a softer or even gentle Sherry and cedar wood on the nose. The best of what I live about Islay combined with the best Highland Park had to offer. Bravo!
 
James
James,
Extraordinary taste. You can taste all the flavors with a great finish. Highly recommended even for those non scotch drinkers.

The smoky chocolate. What a fine scotch is supposed to be. 10
