Highland Park Twisted Tattoo 16 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Highland Park Twisted Tattoo 16 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Founded in 1798, presumably by Magnus Eunson, Highland Parks distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery in Kirkwall Orkney. Highland Park is the northernmost distillery in Scotland, a half mile further north than Scapa distillery. Although the name of the whisky has Highland in the title, the name of the whisky does not refer to the Scottish Highlands, but rather to the fact that the distillery was founded on an area called High Park which is distinguished from a lower Park area nearby.Highland Park malts its own barley, using locally cut peat from the nearby Hobbister Moor. The malt is peated to 20 parts per million phenol and then mixed with unpeated malt produced on the Scottish mainland.Highland Park is also one of the few distilleries that meticulously turns their malt by hand. Their barrels are cut from European and American oak, and crafted into staves at precisely 45. This was the method used by the Vikings to make their longships watertight. In collaboration with Danish tattoo artist and modern day Viking Soul, Colin Dale, this expression marries whisky matured in oak casks seasoned with Spanish Rioja wine 153 casks in total with whisky matured in 70 first-fill bourbon casks. The result is a rich and full-bodied single malt whisky with a distinctively different character.Pick up your bottle today!
