HIGHLAND PARK 15 Year - Viking Heart 44%
Highland Park 15 Years Viking Heart is a rich and complex single malt. Once again the Master Distiller of the Distillery, Gordon Motion selected and assembled several American oak and sherry barrels, and decided to set the stregth at 44% to allow the fruity elements and the peat smoke to stand out. They made the choice to present this single malt in a ceramic bottle to represent the history of Highland Park, taking as back to the era when alcohol would have stored in ceramic containers. A marvel of richness with its spicy aromas of crème brûlée, heather honey, fruit notes, this 15-year-old single malt stands out.
Nose : Notes of light honey and local Highland Park heather. Intense, fruity aromas, and a hint of spice.
Palate : Creamy, pleasant, of a beautiful sweetness, with its notes of heather, cinnamon, tropical fruits
Finish : Long and delicious, with a hint of ginger and pepper.
The Highland Park Distillery is very distinct, the people that create the whisky are equally as important as the peat used for the production. For more than 220 years, Highland Park has smoked its barley, cut on Hobbister Moor, on peat that is more than 4000 years. The malted barley that is used is produced on their own property, surrounded by heather plants. The whiskies were aged in Scottish oak barrels, but unfortunately they had to abandon this technique because the barrels used were far too resinous. Highland Park whisky is marked by the wild and hostile climate and very rough seas surrounding Orkney Island.
