1978 Highland Park Vintage Collection (bot. 2011) 47.8%

A limited edition single malt whisky produced by the legendary Orcadian distillery of Highland Park. The distillery in Kirkwall is one of only a handful who still use a traditional malting floor and favours Sherry casks, which age perfectly in Orkney’s climatic conditions. This 1978 vintage whisky was made exclusively for travel retail and therefore availability is scarce. The box is a nod to the Viking ancestry and this was bottled at a slightly higher ABV than previous releases in the Vintage Collection. Distilled in 1978 and bottled in 2011, placing this at around 33 years old.

If you are buying this in Duty Free, a tip: get it for yourself… it’s too good for a gift! This purrs quality from first to last. And is quite unmistakably Highland Park. A noble malt.
