For neophytes who want to try something with a kiss of peat, this option from the Orkney Islands is the perfect pour. Fruity and floral on the nose, partial maturation in ex-sherry casks adds balance to the local peat, which runs toward the floral side of smoke, rather than iodine and seaweed. 90 Points Whisky Advocate, July 2019
This has a smoky, oaky aromas along with a dash of briny sea air. The body is big, lush and silky, and on the palate notes of sherry, honey, cherries, heather, and hints of toffee are well integrated with a light smoke/brine backdrop. 95 Point, The Wine Enthusiast.
The abiding care and attention, the hallmark of Highland Park production, manifests itself in the distinctive aromatic, full-bodied floral sweetness of the whisky. Highland Park's incomparable balance comes from a tension between the aromatic Orkney peat and the sweetness of oak casks seasoned with Oloroso sherry. The accolade of Best Spirit in the World wasn't a one-off. Highland Park has been picking up medals and awards for over a decade. Distillery Notes
