TasteTasting Notes:

Nose: One of the world's most subtle and teasing noses: delicate wafts of smoke mingle effortlessly with sweet malt, a hint of oaky salt, apples, old polished leather and trademark heather.

Palate: Intensely malty and fresh at first, and then the lingering smoky depth adds weight. Fabulous bitter-sweet balance which pans out on the sweet side with a gentle build-up of honey.

Finish: Teasing. Long, smoky with a heathers dryness and spice. Delicious.

Product Description

Product Description

A take on the normal 12 year old, the Orkney is made from the best barley malted over peat fires. Aged for 12 years in oak casks and using the unique spring water of the island of Orkney gives this whiskey a real distinctive enjoyable taste.

Product Description

Located on the Orkney Islands, one of the northern most parts of Scotland, is the Highland Park distillery. Founded on this remote and windswept island in 1798, the distillery has, for more than two centuries produced a full flavoured, single malt scottish whisky.

Made from the best Barley malted over peat fires; merged with the unique spring waters of the island; and aged in casks for twelve long years that shape its rare and very distinctive character.

In 1888, James Grant, whose father was the manager of the Glenvilet distillery, became managing partner, and later owner of Highland Park.

Its product retains much that is traditional, even original. It has its own floor maltings and peat beds (the peat is cut shallow to impart a light 'rooty' character) and two traditional peat-fired kilns. During malting a little heather is burned.

The Highland Distillery has more than an affinity with the West Highlands in its flavour than with the palish, fragrant, fresh flavoured North Highland groups of malt.

Highland Park is a medium bodied whisky with a heathery aroma.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highland Park 12 Year Old Review! 23 Dec 2013
Distilled, Matured and Bottled on the island of Orkney, this is the most northern Distillery in the British Isles. Highland Park 12 year old is famed for is complex mixture of aroma and taste especially when you take into account the price and how old it is. At 12 years old you are getting a very good representation of what Highland Park is like.

My Personal Tasting Notes:

Nose: Drinking neat you are immediately hit by a slight prickle on the nose with a warming yet mild sherry. There is a spicy note with fresh pear and a hint of Heather and very mild smoke.

Taste: Initially your tongue will tingle, the sherry on the nose finds it's way into the taste yet doesn't dominate. A sweet almost honey taste then becomes prominent with a faint heather note again. You can definitely taste the smoke although it's quite mild and mixes well with the initial sweetness.

Finish: Smoke persists with the heather and honey note quickly Disappearing leaving a dry aftertaste.

With a teaspoon of water added and waiting 15 minutes:

Nose: The heather note really stands out and as time goes by the honey becomes even more prominent. The slight prickle you initially got has gone and in its place the sherry note pronounces itself even more.

Taste: Intense Honey and Heather with the sweetness from the sherry wood influence persisting throughout.

Finish: Smoke intensifies and the sweetness quickly turns dry. At the very end i got a re-occurrence of the sherry.

Highland park has three trademarks that should be in every bottle and will identify it as a good one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highland Park 22 Dec 2013
Highland Park is a whisky to savour. It has none of the harshness, in my opinion, of the Speysides ( that is excepting The Macallum from Craigellachie ) nor the sometimes over peatiness of Islay....but a lot will swear by these blends. I was introduced to Highland Park in a famous Italian grocer/delicattessan in Edinburgh only about 10 years ago when I was a whippersnapper of 63. I was looking for a particular Speyside which they didn't have but the chap who came from my own region near Dufftown suggested ( after blethering about the merits of this and that and the other ) I try Highland Park from Orkney which has a more delicate and long flavour, most especially when accompanied by a shortbread finger from Walkers of Aberlour. I was smitten from that moment....and this from a boy who like many Highlanders has as a youth been sick to the very stomach from overindulgence in the local blends. Try as many whiskies as you can afford but I don't think you will be disappointed with this one...which is my number 1 by a Highland mile!!
