Highland Park 18YO (700ml)
Named Best Spirit in the World in the Spirit Journal, on two separate occasions, the intense balance of the flavours found in Highland Park 18 Year Old owes everything to the five traditional keystones of production, honoured for over 220 years. Slow-burning, aromatic peat from Hobbister Moor; hand-turned floor maltings, Sherry seasoned European oak casks, cool maturation in the temperate island climate and a long and unhurried harmonisation process.
Highland Park 18-Year-Old is predominantly matured in 1st fill European oak Sherry-seasoned casks, delivering a remarkable complexity over time. It delivers lingering layers of sweet honeyed malt wrapped up in subtle floral peat smoke. Over 18 years, the cool Northern climate causes the whisky to age slowly and evenly, providing balanced maturation and depth of flavour.
Aroma: Rich, mature oak, hints of chocolate and cherry. Top note of aromatic smoke.
Taste: Rich, full flavour, honey sweetness, chocolate and peat.
Finish: Soft, round and long with a whisper of peat on the finish.
