Highland Park 25 Year Old C/O NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Add a drop of water to Highland Park 25 Year Old and enjoy an immense vanilla sensation with the characteristic honey sweetness developing into complex aromas of white chocolate, cinnamon, nuts and dark fruit. The finish is at once intensely sweet and gently smokey and goes on and on.

Highland Park is a Scotland’s most northerly single malt whisky distillery, located on Orkney Island. It’s a lightly peated malt, characterized by rich, rounded flavors of heather, golden apples, vanilla and sweet tobacco smoke. After “unofficial” production by Magnus Eunson in the 1790s, Highland Distillers became an established brand in the early 19th century, founded by Robert Borwick and John Robertson. This is around the same time that King George IV gave Scotch royal approval and the Excise Act cut production taxes for commercial distilleries, making room for category expansion. However, Highland Distillers really came into its own in 1876 when it was bought by William Stuart and James Mackay. Not only did the malt begin to achieve class status, but blenders such as Chivas and Dewars were purchasing it to enrich their products. Demand steadily increased through the 1950s after a stoppage during World War II and various changings of hands. In 1970, Highland Distillers, bought Famous Grouse for which Highland contributes their malt. In 1979, Highland Distillers released their proprietary 12 year old single malt as Highland Park. This was an instant classic, perhaps only trumped by their 18 year, both of which consistently receive high accolades from whisky aficionados. Today, Highland Park continues to produce the core age expressions as well as special releases and vintages.  Read less

Amazingly smooth and integrated tasting experience. Wood, smoke and just the slightest hint of a burn. This is a fantastic whiskey.

Powerful aroma with lots of tobacco, wood, apple, pear, banana, toasted walnuts. The mouth is addictingly smooth, with a warm finish.

Smokey, spicy whiskey with an incredibly smooth, persistent finish. A real treat.

This scotch shows true character and finesse. Chocolate flavors are mixed with sharp lemon zest and cookie spice, with a long, pleasant finish of cocoa, sherry and refined malt. If only pastry chefs could recreate such decadence and luxury!
