Highland Park 12 Year Old - Viking Honour 700ml

Very popular single malt internationally, its key quality is its smokiness. Aromas of herbs and heather, boiled sweets and a drop of full-cream; all rounded off with a waft of smoky sweetness.

The water source is the wonderfully named Cattie Maggie's Spring. Peat cut on the local Hobbister Moor heats floor maltings to produce malt with gentle peat reek. The distillery's malt is mixed with unpeated, imported malt, giving gentle smokiness to the end product. The malt is ground and combined with water making wash that is distilled producing spirit. Distilled twice in pot stills, the spirit ages in ex-Bourbon casks adding smooth body to the whisky.


Tasting Notes

Nose: Fresh, clean and very aromatic. Floral notes abound the senses with a light grassiness. Notes of creamy Manuka honey and a touch of juicy citrus with cream and a well-balanced sweetness.

Palate: Rather full with a pleasant depth. Lurking somewhere in the substratum a grilled orange lies. Notes of granary toast and green tea with jasmine. A touch of sweetness.

Finish: Quite long with peppery spice and wood shavings.
