We created 16 Year Old Wings of the Eagle to celebrate our wild and windswept island. Our waters are stormy, our winters are long and few trees can survive here… but that just makes for a more harmonious whisky.
Orkney winds can reach speeds of over 100 miles per hour in winter and this means that our moorland peat is treeless but rich in fragrant heather, which, when burned, produces the characteristic aromatic smokiness of our whisky. In this whisky’s case, when you pair that smokiness with maturation in hand-picked sherry seasoned European oak casks, you capture an intriguing depth of flavour.
With harmonised notes of sweet figs, apricots, nutmeg, chocolate-coated marzipan and aromatic heather-rich peat-smoke, 16 Year Old Wings Of The Eagle is an uncompromising, wildly harmonious single malt whisky.
We’ve been crafting our award-winning whisky at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition may define our whisky, but it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in our whisky.
