Description

Highland Park 18 Year Old showcases the signature style of the distillery – marrying Orcadian peat smoke with rich sherry influences. The extended aging in sherry casks creates a whisky that’s both luxurious and intriguing.

Nose

The aroma is inviting and complex, offering a mix of sweet and savory notes. Expect honey, dried fruit like cherries and raisins, hints of vanilla and baking spices, and a subtle whisper of peaty smoke with a touch of salinity (reminiscent of the Orkney sea air).

Palate

The taste is smooth and well-rounded, with a delightful interplay of sweetness, fruit, spice, and smoke. Flavors of honey, toffee, dried fruits, a touch of citrus, and hints of cinnamon and nutmeg mingle with a subtle peaty smokiness. The oak influence adds a touch of vanilla and tannic dryness.

Finish

The finish is long and lingering, with a pleasant warmth and a subtle balance of sweetness, spice, and smoke. The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a hint of oak and lingering peppery spice.
