Highland Park The Light 17 Year Old 700ml
The dark and light are concepts that exist in opposition, yet together create a perfect balance, and inspired the limited edition releases of the same name. Presented in a majestic serpent-dragon embossed bottle, The Light 17 Year Old was created to celebrate warm summer days in Orkney.
Made to honour a time when we emerge from winter hibernation, ready to embrace the fresh air, clear skies and long days of summer, the whisky is light and bright, with a delicious warm-season-friendly palate having been left to mature for 17 years in refill American oak casks, which have a more gentle influence that first-fill European oak casks. The result is a fine balance of caramelised pear, nutmeg, vanilla, cedarwood and lightly smoked peat… Orcadian Summer in a bottle.
The award-winning single malt whisky has been crafted at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition defines this whisky, and it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in our whisky.
