Highland Park 40 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky: three most important words associated with the creation of unconventional, distinctly balanced single malts are patience, patience, and patience. Created using a high proportion of first-fill sherry seasoned European oak casks, and bottled at 47.5% ABV, this Highland Park 40 Year Old is testament to patience. Highly complex and beautifully balanced, this single malt whisky exhibits aromatic layers of smoke yielding to delicately sweet notes of toffee, dark chocolate and candied lemon. This whisky was described in Whisky Magazine as “an incredibly well drinking Highland Park… sharing some of the 18 Year Old’s refinement but taking it into a different league.”
We’ve been crafting our Award-Winning Whisky at the Highland Park distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1978. Age, experience and 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 flavors found in our whisky.
