United Kingdom

Colour Rich auburn

Nose Lightly smoked with aromas of summer rose, ripe pear and fresh coconut alongside aromatic peat with a hint of cedar wood.

Palate Sweet with a harmony of wood spice with apricots in syrup, rich pear and almond cake, cloudy honey and toasted oak. Like smoked, overripe apricot jam.

Finish Notes of orchard fruits with sticky date pudding, roasted cashews and rich sherry spice.


It’s the release Highland Park fans were waiting for. And it’s an absolute masterpiece — put simply, it’s supremely drinkable, hardcore, old-school Highland Park.

Highland Park's History

While the Orkney’s locals had been honing their skills for a few centuries, it wasn’t until 1798 that an official distillery opened on the islands. But who it was that actually founded it is something still argued about in pubs today. It was either Magnus Eunson, church officer and butcher by day, and illicit distiller and whisky smuggler by night, or the honourable farmer David Robinson. What we do know, is that the distillery’s ornate iron gate has the year 1798 written on it and that’s when the distillery went into legal production, regularly paying duty on the spirit produced on site, and in 1826 Highland Park became one of Scotland’s first distilleries to get a license to make whisky.
