The 10 Year Old Orkadian
VIKING SCARS pays tribute to their ancestors’ enduring influence on Orkney and the value they placed on skilled craftsmanship and a steadfast work ethic. Magnus Eunson, who founded Highland Park in 1798, was a direct descendant of the early Viking pioneers who settled in Orkney. The Vikings left their mark on the landscape, the culture and the people. They also shaped the character of Highland Park’s whisky.
All the great Highland Park characteristics are here, just on a more gentler level. Great value drinking.
Nose: Subtle Sherry influence, but balanced by heather-y smoke.
Palate: Ginger and waxy orange peel. Earthy peat with a another hint of Sherry sweetness buried underneath.
Finish: Sea salt and heather once again. A few herbaceous hints of coriander leaf and crushed black pepper.
