Highland Park 18
Highland Park 18 is a truly phenomenal single malt. It has a complex and rich palate with plenty of deep notes and a long-smokey finish.
Highland Park distillery
Highland Park distillery was founded in 1798 however it received its license in 1826. It remained a family owned distillery until 1840 when ownership of the distillery was transferred to the youngest member of the family who happened to be a priest. The distillery's production capacity was expanded in 1898 to 4 stills and it has remained with 4 stills until now. In 1937 the distillery was acquired by a consortium composed by the Edrington Group and W. Grant and sons (owners of Glenfiddich). These days the distillery enjoys a strong position in the international whisky market. Apart from its usage of hard water in the brewing process, the peat used by this distillery has a rather high content of heather. This imparts a slightly perfumed note to the whisky.
