A light, fresh and sweetly balanced expression of Highland Park, matured for 35 years in a combination of butt and hogshead casks, yielding 893 bottles.
Laid down in the same year that Apple Inc had its humble beginnings in a garage in Los Altos, California, our 1976 vintage was finally bottled in 2011. This elegant 35 year old expression of Highland Park is the product of a combination of thirteen butt and hogshead refill casks, hand selected by our longest standing Whisky Maker, Max McFarlane, for their outstanding character.
Yielding just 893 bottles, it’s an intriguingly light and fruity expression of Highland Park, with enticing notes of melon and mango beautifully balanced by our traditional notes of sweet heather honey and aromatic peat smoke.
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.
