A spectacular representation of the soul of Highland Park Single Malt.
Highland Park is the most northerly distillery in Scotland on the Orkney Islands. 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.”
There’s something special about twelve year old Single Malts. Don’t get us wrong, there are some amazing ten year olds and NAS Whiskies out there. But there is magic threshold at an even dozen years that we really like. Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old is the core Highland Park Single Malt with the flavor profile of sweetness and light peat smoke that it’s famous for with the smoothness that only time can bring. And it’s won more than thirty medals and competition honors itself, lending a ring of truth to its name.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aromas waft like perfume, filled with floral notes, fresh-cut grass, orange sherbet, and honey.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is full and deep with toasted cream of wheat, more florals — heather and jasmine — and flamed orange zest.
The finish is long with blooming wet wood and roasted pepper.
