Highland Park 18 Year
Peated Single Malt
Highland Park // Islands, Scotland
Shudder to think that Highland Park 18 has only been with us since 1997. What were we drinking instead? With the highest of accolades awarded in the whisky world under their belt, one wonders what is their secret to success. The selection and creation of the casks has to be part of the recipe. Using both European and American oak, casks are built to their specifications and sent off to Jerez to be filled with Oloroso Sherry. Three years later, they get them back and the journey begins.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
"The sweet smoke is the underlying feature in this whisky but the complexity of the dram is what is most enjoyable. Among the many notes found were oyster mushrooms, fresh cut apples, kelp, cigar ash, honey, sea salt, and smoked bacon. Velvety and indulgent, the whisky finishes on the dry side with mouthwatering acidity."
