A rich and spicy flavor. Notes of cloves, cardamom, raisins followed by light heathery peat smoke and a long, lingering finish.
Today, over two centuries after its founding, Highland Park Distillery remains one of the few Scottish distilleries that continues to hand-turn, malt, and peat its own barley. “You have to be careful here on the malting floor,” says Eric Tait, Highland Park’s Maltman. “You find it can get a wee bit slippery underneath. I have to turn the malt every eight hours to prevent the roots from getting tangled and to get it all aerated properly. The airing also helps it to grow. The malt will be on the floor for seven days, and I’m running five floors at the moment.”
After malting the barley, Highland Park Distillery smokes it using peat sourced from Hobbister Moor, a peat bog located approximately seven miles from the distillery. Hobbister Moor peat is sourced from floral heather bushes, which burn hotter and cleaner than the grassy peats of Islay. Also, the peat sourced from Hobbister Moor has greater derivatives of carbohydrates and a lower concentration of lignin than peat from Islay, giving Highland Park’s peat a unique chemical fingerprint.
The peat sourced from Hobbister Moor is “absolutely fundamental in understanding the flavor of Highland Park Whisky,” says Russell Anderson, the distillery manager. Together with Orkney’s unique environment (the temperate, moist climate of the archipelago results in an even maturation process), the peat gives Highland Park Whisky its traditional malty flavors that are tempered by just a subtle touch of smoke.
Highland Park is proud to introduce Highland Park Søren 26 Year, an exclusive release of 1,206 bottles in partnership with renowned photographer, Søren Solkær. Rich and smoky, the whisky has been crafted from a combination of exceptional casks hand-selected by Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion.
