Product Description

Released in December 2011, the 1976 Vintage is the fifth release in the Orcadian Vintage Series. The result of lengthy maturation in American oak, this Vintage delivers a lighter, tropical fruit and floral flavour, combined with the classic Highland Park sweet, smoky balance.

"The hallmark of Highland Park production, an all-pervading obsession with quality and attention to detail, can be discerned in the distinctive aromatic, full-bodied floral sweetness of the whisky. The flory of Highland Park lies in its remarkable balance; this is as evident in the 1976 Vintage as in all other expressions." - Max McFarlane

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Light Gold.

Nose: Light, fresh fruit such as melon and mango, freshly cut resinous wood. A wonderful butter hint arrives late then the classic heather sweet note.

Palate: Very floral to start, reminiscent of the heather fields of hobbister moor in bloom, marzipan and coconut, and ending in a honey coated almond.

Finish: Lingering notion of balance between wood and cream, neither in the ascendancy, smooth violet softens the finish.
