Highland Park 40 Year Old – Spring 2019 Release Rich and beautifully balance, deep and aromatic, and infuse with a delicate sweetness,
this truly exceptional 40 Year Old single malt whisky is the product of just five refill casks originally laid down before 1979.
These casks were brought together in 2008 and fill into first-fill sherry season American oak casks to intensify the maturing whisky’s flavour over a further 10 years of maturation.
The refill casks that originally hold this whisky are ideal for a long,
slow maturation while the first-
fill sherry season casks in which the whisky complete its maturation,
bring a depth of character and nutty, fruit-fill notes of sherry to the fore.
We’ve been crafting our award-
winning whisky at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall,
Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition may define our whisky,
but it’s Orkney that sets it apart.
Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in our whisky.
Much have change in the world since this Highland Park 40 Year Old –
Spring 2019 release was first distill at their Orkney distillery 40 years ago,
not least the style of their bottles, but this is one whisky that has taken to middle age like a duck to water.
Dark, complex and downright delicious,
this comes with all the usual decorative flourishes we’ve come to expect from the islanders
