Produced by Highland Park in Scotland the northernmost distillery in the United Kingdom. The distillery stands on a hill not far from Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands, where the brackish flora continually beaten by the North Sea offers all the elements necessary to produce a wonderful whiskey.
Highland Park Viking Scars is left to age for 10 years in ex-sherry barrels, during which the aromas and spices blend perfectly with the most sought-after Scottish peat. On the nose stands the sherry balanced by peat and intriguing spicy notes. On the palate the light smokiness it is accompanied by citrus flavors that brighten its fruition. The closure is not extremely long, the salty note is softened by the ever-present sherry and important spicy / peppery notes.
