HIGHLAND PARK Orcadian 1970
HIGHLAND PARK Orcadian 1970. As the world witnessed the dawn of the supersonic age with Concorde’s maiden flight, the 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 the 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.
