Viking Pride. Named Best Spirit in the World in the Spirit Journal, on two separate occasions, the intense balance of the flavours found in VIKING PRIDE owes everything to our five traditional keystones of production, honoured for over 220 years. Slow-burning, aromatic peat from Hobbister Moor; hand turned floor maltings, Sherry seasoned European oak casks, cool maturation in our temperate island climate and a long and unhurried harmonisation process. Like our founder, Magnus Eunson, we share our Viking ancestors’ commitment to skilled craftsmanship as well as their proud, independent spirit.
"It fits my profile of what makes a perfect whisky. Which is to say it’s totally in harmony. There are no rough edges and everything is melded together brilliantly." F. Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal
"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. Distillery Notes
