Highland Park is one of the most respected Scotch whiskies. The distillery still operates its own floor maltings, which cover about 30% of malt requirements. Highland Park uses local peat, which is by all means unique. Due to lack of trees on Orkney it is formed mostly with moss, ferns and heather, what certainly influence the character of whisky. The remaining malt, always unpeated, is bought from mainland and both are mixed before mashing. The 1968 Vintage expression is part of Duncan Taylor’s Peerless range. The whisky is coming from cask no. 3461, filled on Orkney on March 23, 1968 and aged in Speyside, in Duncan Taylor’s warehouse. Bottled at natural strength of 41.8% abv on September 30, 2009 with an outrun of 158 bottles.
Nose: thick but surprisingly fresh, honey, heather, vanilla, lots of oak, hints of tobacco and cedar wood, sugar coated almonds and fading hints of smoke.
Palate: rich and sweet, vanilla custard and honey, bitter oranges, dried apricots, apples, bananas, butterscotch, hints of garden herbs and lingering oakiness.
Finish: fairly long and oaky with notes of oranges, honey and delicate herbal notes.
