Review door Highland Park

« Deze review is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »
Kleur

A delightfully rich, russet hue with exemplary clarity and brightness.

Geur

Redolent of toasted oak, dried strawberries and shellac with a generous coating of beeswax.

Smaak

Delicious sweetness combined with a fascinating spiciness; crushed black pepper, crème brûlée and toasted vanilla pod add to the complexity.

Afdronk

Rich, long, lingering spiciness completes the sensational tasting experience of this venerable single malt.

Notitie

The oldest of the Orcadian Vintage Series, the 1964 Vintage was released in November 2009, a vatting of two hand selected hogshead casks, yielding only 290 70cl bottles at a natural strength of 42.2% abv. Max McFarlane, Highland Park Whisky Maker, said; “The casks allowed the delicate fragrance of the original spirit to shine through without being overpowered by the oak notes. This distinctive, aromatic fragrance derives from hand-turned malt which has been dried over Orkney’s heather-based peat. In addition, the peaceful, extended maturation in Orkney’s cool climate has resulted in a whisky of remarkable complexity.”
