Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or soutenu.
  • Nose : ample, riche. Au premier nez, une tourbe herbacée (fougère, bruyère) partage la vedette avec du chocolat noir et des épices (badiane, girofle). Minéral, quasi tellurique (schiste, lave), il devient de plus en plus floral (lavande, lilas). La puissance et l’opulence de Highland Park sont à leur zénith. Plus il s’aère, plus le nez devient affûté, capiteux et concentré.
  • Palate : onctueuse, nuancée. Remarquable de finesse, elle séduit par son caractère aérien et enlevé. L’orge maltée resplendit de présence, elle entraîne avec elle toute une kyrielle d’épices (cannelle, coriandre), de fruits (gelée de coing, abricot) ainsi que du miel de tilleul. La tourbe refait une apparition, elle est humide et saline.
  • Overall : longue, savoureuse. Le chocolat noir et la fève de cacao mettent en valeur son toucher poudré et délicat. Elle évolue sur des notes de cuir, de cire d’abeille et d’agrumes (bergamote, kumquat). Elle se prolonge sur le tabac frais, les fruits mûrs (pêche, brugnon) et exotiques (mangue). Le verre vide témoigne de son intensité tourbée et florale.
The brand

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



Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

The Cask Strength Collection of single malt and single grain whiskies is without doubt one of the most appreciated ranges. Each release is bottled undiluted, unchillfiltered and usually consists of a single cask. To help the consumer appreciate their whisky at more than a purely aromatic and gustatory level, Signatory Vintage takes care to display on each label, with great precision, the region of production, the date of distillation and bottling, the type of cask used, its number and the number of bottles of the same nectar that were produced. This range thus offers some fascinating facts, in addition to exceptional quality!
