All about making whisky
From the very first moment you nose this whisky, you know you’re dealing with a truly majestic Highland Park. The notes of cut hay, yellow fruit, heather, beeswax, spices, smoke, heady florals and citrus fruit expressed on the nose; and the succulent honeys, black fruit, agave, coconut, lily, chillies and dried fruit found on the palate reveal a rich and complex palette of aromas and flavours, whose ability to transport and deeply move the taster is not the least of its achievements. Furthermore, it moves from one register to another with the ease of a true masterpiece.
Profile: fresh, the nose is herbaceous, fruity (melon) and floral (heather). It then becomes waxy, spicy and slightly smoky. Notes of wallflower. The palate is deliciously honeyed and floral. It then takes us into the countryside, over a moor covered with heather. A handful of black fruit (cherry, blueberry) joins the scene.

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
Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.
