In a Nutshell
Full, rounded Orkney malt with a smoky sweetness, gentle palate of heather & subtle smoke.
Glowing amber in colour. Heather-honey sweetness combined with peaty smoke notes on the nose. Rounded smoky sweetness followed by full bodied malt, the finish is gentle with heathery and subtle smoke.
The distillery has 2,000 square feet of stone floors where the malt is traditionally turned every eight hours to promote succulence and balance in Highland Park. Drying the malt over aromatic Orkney peat imparts distinctive aromas a unique sweet smokiness. Orkney's cool climate encourages even maturation adding balance to the whisky. Maturation in sherry oak casks contributes natural colour and complexity. The first distillery bottling of Highland Park single malt Scotch whisky was as a 12 year old in 1979 and it remains the core expression and entry level to what is now a large range of Highland Park official bottlings.
Highland Park will forever be associated with Magnus Eunson who founded the distillery at the end of the 18th century. Eunson was a beadle by day and a smuggler at night.
