Highland Park has launched a permanent 15 year old single malt Scotch Whisky. This Highland Park 15 Year Old Viking Heart bottle is easy to recognise. It is presented in a beautiful embossed ceramic white bottle that is created with renowned specialists UK based Wade Ceramics. The ceramic bottle is inspired by ancient earthenware vessels. Whisky would have been stored a century or two ago at the distillery.
The 15 year old contains a high percentage of first-fill European oak sherry seasoned cask. This cask delivers a warm, dry spicy note. The first-fill American oak sherry seasoned casks back this up with notes of vanilla and créme brûlée. A small proportion of refill casks allow the DNA of Highland Park whisky to shine through. That’s the gentle heather peat and lightly fruity character.
The Viking Heart has aromas of charred cinnamon shards, mellow smoke from Orkney’s unique heather peat, warm vanilla sponge cake, sun-kissed lemon zest, fresh pineapple and rich heather honey. A complex and rich finish lingers with a gentle aromatic peat smoke.
“Our insistence on specially constructed sherry casks delivers a richness of flavour. Vanilla and citrus notes lead and combine with the unique fragrant peat and creamy mouthfeel synonymous with Highland Park. The hand selection of quality first-fill and refill casks for Highland Park 15 Year Old delivers a rich colour which is 100% natural. Bottled at 44% ABV, this retains more of the compounds which deliver a whisky with extra body and enhanced mouthfeel.’Gordon Motion, Highland Park, Master Whisky Maker
