The New Orkadian 15 Year Old Single Malt

A newly released 15 year old is presented in a beautiful embossed ceramic white bottle and comes with a stylish limited edition leather bag (limited stock)

The Highland Park 15 Year Old Viking Heart is presented in a heavily embossed ceramic bottle, created in partnership with UK based Wade Ceramics. The inspiration of which came from ancient earthenware vessels, the same the whisky would have been stored in a century or two ago at the distillery.

Created from casks hand-selected by Highland Park Whisky Maker Gordon Motion, the 15 Year Old contains a high percentage of first-fill European oak sherry seasoned casks, which he says delivers a warm, dry spicy note. The first-fill American oak sherry seasoned casks, Motion said, back this up with notes of vanilla and crème brûlée.

“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."

Whiskymaker's Tasting Notes:

This is a wonderfully rich and complex single malt. Opening with rich and spicy aromas of crème brulee, heather honey and crumbled cinnamon, intensely fruity notes follow - fresh pineapple dressed with a scattering of sun-kissed lemon zest. There’s a hint of freshly-baked sponge cake too, warm from the oven, and you’ll find cinnamon again, but toasted shards this time. Citrus and vanilla notes linger in the aromatic waves of peat smoke.
