Highland Park 40 Year

With a latitude on the Orkney Islands mirroring that of Anchorage, Alaska and Oslo, Norway; the angels share is just a little less per year than most of Scotland (1% vs 2% per year,respectively). This means more whisky can age for a longer time at Highland Park.

Cask Typerefill ex-sherry casks
"The classic gentle peat smoke profile is a mark throughout the dram. Honey covered almonds, soft and chewy nougat, and oak spice are present on your palate for an extraordinary length of time. The whisky is lively and the wood tannins are woven throughout the whisky beautifully as a supporting rather than a featured role. "
