Highland Park Mjolner 14 Year Old Australian Exclusive

Highland Park has been distilled since 1798, on the same site where their founder, Magnus Eunson, set up his original illicit still at High Park. Ten miles from the northernmost reaches of the Scottish Mainland lie the 70 or so islands that make up Orkney, only 20 of which are inhabited. The beautiful, yet isolated cluster of islands, is pounded relentlessly by winds that frequently reach speeds of over 100mph in the winter. No tree can survive such an onslaught, which means that their moorland peat is woodless but rich in fragrant heather, which give rise to the unique aromatic smokiness of their whisky. For over 220 years, they’ve smoked their barley over 4,000-year-old peat, hand-cut from Hobbister Moor, just 7 miles from the distillery.

This particular limited cask strength Highland Park has been matured for 14-years in 'predominantly' European oak sherry casks, plus some American oak sherry casks and refill casks, and 1,731 bottles were released.
Available exclusively in the Australian market only. This 14 year old cask strength was created by the Edrington Group for the Australian cocktail bar Mjolner.
