The latest single malt launched by Orcadian distiller Highland Park extends its range to 30 year old.
The company launched its 30 year old at the recent Whisky Live event in Glasgow, and is one of the few 30 year old distillery bottlings to be released on a permanent basis.
Highland Park’s brand ambassador Gerry Tosh said: “This particular whisky proves that 30 years of maturation results in an entirely new expression of Highland Park that is unique in flavour while maintaining the distinctive Orcadian characteristics of smokiness, peat and sweetness.”
The whisky is available on the Highland Park website and at whisky specialists for £179.99.
