The insider's scoTch h ailing from the Orkney Islands of Scotland, Highland Park takes great pride in the over-200 years of experience, which the company has garnered since its creation in 1798. Changes here have been small throughout that time, and only in a pursuit of respecting tradition while improving the quality of their Whisky. Highland Park is one of the few distilleries to use a traditional malting floor, turning each batch of malt by hand, allowing it to slowly germinate before the peating process, which imparts the true character to their whisky. It's that level—or should we say, depth—obtained through the peat, which sets Highland Park apart from all others. Delicate, sweet and highly aromatic smokiness lingers in the glass yet never overwhelms the senses. The aging regimen combines both Spanish and American oak, all seasoned with dry Oloroso sherry. The Spanish oak contributes dried fruit and spice, while the American oak adds sweeter vanilla and butterscotch. These lots are then combined for a "harmonization" period to allow all of the aromas and flavors to integrate. Add that perfect hint of peaty smokiness, and Highland Park may be the most "complete" Scotch in the market today. ✦ HiGHlAnd PARK oRKneyS SinGle MAlT SCoTCH wHiSKy price 12 year old (1003163) $54 15 year old (1103650) $84 dark origins (1103921) $89 18 year old (1103400) $136 30 year old (1003228) $695
