HIGHLAND PARK 18 YEAR OLD 43%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands-orkney, 70cl, Ref: 8508
Single malt consisting of 60% bourbon and 40% sherry barrels. Without doubt the best of the official Highland Park whiskies. Its floral character recalls a heady, flowery perfume. A magnificent version from the warehouses of Scotland’s northernmost distillery. Gold colour; generous nose, characterised by flowers, honey and smoked barley. The creamy palate confirms the notes of the bouquet and also develops hints of spices (nutmeg) and dried fruit. The rather dry finish is a little short.

- Appearance : burnished gold with glints of amber.
- Nose : generous, refined. Harmonious, with notes of flowers (violets, lilacs), honey, apricots and dark chocolate. Evolves with lightly smoked malted barley and pipe tobacco.
- Palate : firm, smooth. It reveals the mellow acridity of the peat and notes of heather, then develops spicy notes (nutmeg).
- Overall : dry, ashy. Notes of walnuts and almonds underscore the influence of the maturation in sherry barrels. Lingers with notes of heady flowers and heather honey.
- The brand
Highland Park owes its special character to two elements that are essential to the production of whisky: people and peat. The latter, used for the barley it malts on site, comes directly from its own peat bogs, which are composed almost exclusively of Calluna heather and its roots. When it comes to people, Highland Park is so proud of its roots that it was the last distillery, a century ago, to still use endemic Scottish barley for the production of its whisky. It even experimented with maturation in Scottish oak casks. Luckily that experiment was abandoned when they proved to be too resinous. Find out more
