Highland Park Distillery
A red and golden hue, with an aroma of mature oak, fudge and chocolate. The whisky has initial notes of honey and nutty toffee, which lead to a rich and supple finish.
Situated in the Orkney archipelago in Northern Scotland, Highland Park Distillery was founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson. The name of the distillery is derived not from the region of Scotland known as The Highlands — the Orkney islands are not a part of The Highlands — but rather from the region known as High Park, where the distillery was founded.
Today, over two centuries after its founding, Highland Park Distillery remains one of the few Scottish distilleries that continues to hand-turn, malt, and peat its own barley. "You have to be careful here on the malting floor," says Eric Tait, Highland Park's Maltman. "You find it can get a wee bit slippery underneath. I have to turn the malt every eight hours to prevent the roots getting tangled and to get it all aerated properly. The airing also helps it to grow. The malt will be on the floor for seven days and I'm running five floors at the moment."
After malting the barley, Highland Park Distillery smokes it using peat sourced from Hobbister Moor, a peat bog located approximately seven miles from the distillery. Hobbister Moor peat is sourced from floral heather bushes, which burn hotter and cleaner than the grassy peats of Islay. In addition, the peat sourced from Hobbister Moor has greater derivatives of carbohydrates and a lower concentration of lignin than peat from Islay, giving Highland Park's peat a unique chemical fingerprint. The peat sourced from Hobbister Moor is "absolutely fundamental" in understanding the flavor of Highland Park Whisky, says Russell Anderson, the Distillery Manager. Together with Orkney's unique environment (the temperate, moist climate of the archipelago results in an even maturation process), the peat gives Highland Park Whisky its traditional malty, coastal flavors tempered by just a subtle touch of smoke.
After Highland Park Single Malt Whisky is distilled, it is matured in sherry casks for a minimum of twenty-five years. As a result, it has a red and golden hue, along with an aroma of mature oak, fudge and chocolate. The whisky has initial notes of honey and nutty toffee, which lead to a rich and supple finish.

Atención: Algunos elementos de esta página se han traducido automáticamente.Goods were only just received. Upon receipt, both bottle and box were damaged and did not match the photos provided by the seller. I have contacted the seller and they are refusing to act. DO NOT BUY!Atención: Algunos elementos de esta página se han traducido automáticamente.I have informed the buyer that I will check with the shipping company as the bottle is shipped in GOOD AND SAFE condition and way before the shipping company get back to me, the buyer has judged impatiently and did not wait for my reply. This bottle is received on 22 January 2017 according to the shipping company record, and the buyer mentioned that he just received the bottle which is not reliable and accurate for me to claim with the shipping company. If Catawiki required the shipping record, I would love to provide it as reference. The shipping company wouldn't accept the damage of the bottle if it is more than two weeks and it is not reasonable.
Atención: Algunos elementos de esta página se han traducido automáticamente.The seller wrapped the bottle with a tape with very strong glue which unfortunately damaged it - unfortunately, he does not feel financially responsible - he only apologized. I do not recommend becausAtención: Algunos elementos de esta página se han traducido automáticamente.Please be aware my responsibility as a seller is to assure the item shipped out safe and sound to reach the buyer. I wrapped all my bottles in the same way to prevent the possibility of leakage. First, in the conversation we had in whatsapp, the buyer just asked about the sticky stains and I have replied instantly and report this to the courier company to find out about this issue. Unfortunately, there is no further reply from you. I have did my part with my responsibility as a seller much enough.
