Notes from the Distillery:
Matured predominantly in European and American sherry seasoned oak casks, our iconic 12 Year Old single malt whisky is spicy and well-rounded, packed with the flavours of sun-kissed Seville oranges and rich fruitcake spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves; you’ll find molten heather honey in this whisky’s waves of heathery peat smoke. Why not try it with a handful of wasabi peas on the side or alongside a sizzling, pan-fried rib-eye steak or with smoked salmon and sour cream.
We’ve been crafting our award-winning whisky at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition may define our whisky, but it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in our whisky.

"A wonderfully complex spirit with undulating aromas of peat smoke, milk caramel, and buttery tarts of roasted apple and pear fruit. Medium-bodied with a silky texture, the alcohol is seamlessly integrated into the spirit, with wisps of aromatic wood and a slightly tannic finish."

"Light and delicate on the nose with a musty smokiness on the palate. Nuances of stewed fruits and vanilla come through to lead to a sweet finish."
92 Points, Editor's Choice - Whisky Advocate
"A whiff of peat and a maritime breeze of salt air, seashells, and beach bonfire embers, drifting into tropical notes of lime and pineapple, as well as baked apples. Sweetness on the palate, with a dash of peat atop vanilla cream, graham cracker, milk chocolate, zesty lime, and espresso beans. Water brings out fruit notes of melon, strawberries, and red apples, and the finish settles things with a back note of cocoa and a bang of winter spice."
