A whole hogshead picked out by Flaviar — just for you.
Just off the coast of Northern Scotland lie the Orkney Islands. Battered by the northern winds and enveloped in the smell of the sea, there stands the Highland Park Distillery. Situated right where Whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson used his position as a church official to conceal Whisky beneath the church pulpit, the distillery proudly flaunts its Viking roots. Contrary to the name, the character of their Spirit sits somewhere between Lowland and Islay Single Malts. Perhaps the most famous Whisky connoisseur of all time — the journalist Michael Jackson — called Highland Park "The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky."
To be able to pick out a cask from a distillery with such a glorious history is an honor indeed. Their Single Cask series of Single Malt Scotch has some serious cask-strength juice. This one is a 125-proof beast that has spent a dozen years in its first-fill European oak Sherry hogshead. It's unique as well and won't ever be replicated — after these 306 exclusive Flaviar-edition bottles are gone, that's that, gone with the wind. You can bet that they're going to disappear like tears in the rain, so better get on it fast!

Deep autumnal russet
Nose / Aroma / Smell
There's fruity black cherry notes in there, along with fresh pipe tobacco, a touch of cinnamon, and heather peat — the Orkney one that they use is more than 4000 years old!
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate has plenty of spice, as well as sultanas and candied citrus. Nutty almond notes and a touch of peat round it all up nicely.
Finishes long with lingering nutty and spicy notes.
