Rich and complex with a lingering spicy finish, our 1970 vintage is the product of seven refill casks, bottled in 2010 and yielding 1,800 bottles.
As the world witnessed the dawn of the supersonic age with Concorde’s maiden flight, our 1970 vintage began its long and peaceful maturation in Orkney’s temperate climate, resulting – 40 years later – in a whisky of remarkable elegance and perfect balance. The refill casks – a combination of butts and hogsheads – were hand selected by our longest standing Whisky Maker, Max McFarlane, for their exceptional character.
This 1970 vintage was tipped in 2010, yielding a delightfully rich and complex 40 year old expression of Highland Park which delivers a long, lingering and spicy finish.
Each expression in the Orcadian Vintage Series is presented in an exquisite wooden box which features marquetry inspired by the intricate wood carvings at the Urnes Stave Church in Norway and the Highland Park amulet, hand-crafted in silver.
