"The nose brings tightly knit salt and peat, with notes of black pepper, old leather, and sweet butter. The body is soft and full, and the palate bears muted iodine followed swiftly by peat, honey, dried cherries, heather and a great lactic note." Score: 97, The Wine Enthusiast.
"The Highland Park 18 YO, Distillery Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky is lightly salty. Leafy (vine leaves?), pine nuts. Lots of flavor development: nuts, honey, cinnamon, dryish ginger." Score: 92, Michael Jackson, Malt Whisky Companion.
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.
