Description:
18 Year Old Highland Park 18 Year Old is an exceptionally fine whisky that builds on the world-class reputation already enjoyed by the 12 Year Old.

All the Orcadian hallmarks of Highland Park are here - the smokiness, the peat, the heather-honey - plus it has gained a glorious richness and spiciness through its longer cask maturation.

Its elegance and smoothness make the 18 year old a delight to the malt whisky connoisseur.

Colour: Natural colour, burnished gold, clear and bright.
Aroma: Rich, mature oak, top note of aromatic smoke.
Taste: Rich, full flavour; honey and peat.
Finish: Soft, round and long

Producer Information

Built in 1798, Scotland's most Northern distillery is set on the site where the infamous illicit distiller, Magnus Eunson's bothy used to stand. Magnus, a minister, was informed his church was to be searched by the excise men. He ordered the casks to be taken to his house whereupon they were disguised as a coffin. When the excise men burst in they found the
family kneeling in prayer beside the 'coffin' - the mere mention of smallpox was enough to stop the men enquiring any further.
Highland Park continues to malt its own barley using the traditional floor malting method and to kiln dry the 'green' malt using peat cut from its own moorlands. One of the few distilleries where you can still see and smell smoke wafting from its pagoda-style chimneys.
Cattie Maggie is the underground spring that feeds a former quarry close to Highland Park. The spring and quarry are named after a tinker who lived in the vicinity. The water is pure and very hard, rising through a sedimentary rock of hard sandstone known as Walliwall.
