From the label
“At Highland Park we insist on uncompromising approach to whisky making. We’re one of only a handful of distilleries that slowly malts its barley on a stone floor.
Turning it by hand and thereby delivering a more balanced flavour. Next, we smoke the barley over aromatic peat. Hand cut from Hobbister moor to bring a unique fragrant heather character to the whisky, then the spirit is taken from the stills and carefully filled into sherry oak from Spain, these deliver priceless natural colour and a distinctive honey sweetness, perfectly complimenting the aromatic peat. Next comes the hardestsure thi part, leaving it undisturbed for 12 or more years to mature in the consistently cool Orcadian air. When it’s ready, we choose and combine our best casks, then leave them to settle and harmonise. The result is a uniquely smooth, balanced single malt with a rich full flavour and a gentle smoky finish. It’s the kind of dram you long for when you’ve worked as hard as we have.
Gently Smoky but Surprisingly Sweet
In the perfect way to describe the uniqueness of Highland Park. The meeting point between the aromatic peat of Orkney and the sweet sherry oak casks from Spain ensure this perfect balance is always achieved”
