A world champion Single Malt that could be some of the best Highland Park has to offer.

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.”

Highland Park Viking Pride 18 Year Old has been named “Best Spirit in the World” by the respected Spirit Journal… twice. They are so precise about this Whisky that they even specify the exact location where the peat used to dry the malt must be harvested — Hobbister Moor. They are equally particular about the European ex-Sherry casks used to age it in precise temperate locations. It’s obvious why they call it “Viking Pride.” So, we suggest that you purchase more than one bottle while it’s in stock if you can manage it.

Appearance / Color
Antique Bronze

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is complex and filled with florals — heather and hibiscus — with cherry juice, warm toffee, almond cookies, and peat smoke

Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the tongue you’ll find a creamy texture with a lot going on… from deep stewed fruits, espresso, citrus zest, toffee, and a delicate spice blend.

Finish
The finish is nice and long with sweetness, herbs, and a touch of peat."

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
