Style: Single Malt Whisky
Current Batch: 3
Batch Size: 27
Living on the rugged Isle of Orkney, Highland Park is a much-loved Scotch whisky distillery. They produce peated whisky, but it’s quite a bit different to the style of whisky you’d find on Islay - it’s a touch sweeter and more herbaceous, though yummy coastal air still wafts through some Highland park whiskies. The label features the gang from Maltstock 2012, with one addition to the crew - the ghost of Charlemagne! He’s throwing his pants up in a tree in the woods of Overasselt, which is said to be good luck. I mean, you could probably just throw a t-shirt or something, but if you want to chuck your pants, that’s your prerogative.
Nose: Lightly-browned toast with a good helping of butter and honey. Soon after you'll get plenty of Highland Park smoke...
Palate: Red apple and orange blossom, with more sweet smoke wafting through.
Finish: Spectacularly long and satisfying.
