Highland Park 10yo Bottling Note

10 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the Highland Park distillery on Orkney, presented in the heavily-Viking-inspired livery that was launched in 2017. This expression is normally found on mainland Europe, but it seems that some bottles have landed on our shores (presumably on some sort of longboat, considering all the Viking imagery connected to it).

Consider this similar product...

Aerolite Lyndsay 10yo
(70cl, 46%)

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Subtle Sherry influence, but balanced by heather-y smoke.

Palate: Ginger and waxy orange peel. Earthy peat with a another hint of Sherry sweetness buried underneath.

Finish: Sea salt and heather once again. A few herbaceous hints of coriander leaf and crushed black pepper.

Rough caustic TCP smoky peat.
Rough caustic TCP smokey peat. Didn't like. Not as good as the 12 year old. Money wasted - there are better whiskeys for the price. Came close to pouring it down the drain - still might. Probably ok in a whiskey mac, but not really a straight sipping whiskey. Disappointed.

Smooth but interesting
I was bought this as a gift being unfamiliar with the brand. What a great surprise. Smooth. Good flavours and light complexity. I’d go again for sure.

I was given this as a present and have greatly enjoyed it. It’s slightly rougher around the edges than the 12 but has a different quality I can’t put my finger on. It may be sacrilege for a single malt but it does work well in cocktails, particularly a Whisky Mac

A good young upstart
I think I like this more than the 12 but not quite sure why. I like the saline element and the touch of smoke, tempered with a sweetness. It’s a little young but has something the 12 doesn’t that I can’t put my finger on.

For Cocktails !
Dunno why this 10 is more expensive than the “12”

Note that according to the folk in the Highland Park Distillery, this 10 YO is not simply a younger 12, it is blended differently for those strange souls who like mixing malt Whisky into cocktails and the like.

OK if that is your bag-but it ain’t mine !

Exquisitely enduring experience of magical mysteries!
Fantastic! One of the best malts I have ever tasted. It lingers upon the tongue spinning many more mysteries!

Much prefer more Sherried 12 to the 10
Tried 10 Yo and 12 Yo side by side in Kirkwall Hotel Whisky Bar. Noticeably different casking- not just an age difference.

Much preferred the 12 to the 10, the latter tasting half-way to a Burbon to me.

They also had the 15 Yo Cask Strength, @ £32 nip ! ( I bought a whole bottle for £230 at the HP Shop) and those were their cheap ones ! Some of the others would require a mortgage !

Smooth but disappointing
Relatively smooth but lacks any depth of taste. Rather than “peaty” it’s more compost. Bought for me as a gift but just can’t drink it.

This is a very nice whisky. Salty sea and light smoke on the nose. Light mouthfeel which some of us whisky drinkers like, smoky malty full bodied taste and a really full on aftertaste. Many years ago HP had a 12 yo and a 15 yo and that was about it. They were great go to malts but for several years now HP has put out so many variants you don't know what is in the bottle. HP please go back to doing what you did best. Tradition is the Viking King.

I bought two bottles on offer recently. This and a new bottle of Tali 10 as it has been a favourite. I’d take this over it any day now the new TAli has dropped heavily in value and the colour is comically dark compared to previous bottles.

This has all the burnt match notes with a lovely bit of Sherry sweetness.

If you see it on offer in the shops for ~£25 it’s a great buy. Good if you have people coming who like whisky and you don’t want them supping all your best bottles but still giving them a nice drop
