I have to call this one a legend right away. This is the regular Highland Park 12 year old single malt whisky on steroids. Orkneyinga Legacy is a rarity you can usually get straight from the distillery. Yes, no retail possibility for this beauty.
2018 spring being the exception when Highland Park arranged a batch for online sales. That’s where I got my bottle for our Highland Park tasting.
The regular 12 year old HP is already a good whisky, bottled at 40% alcohol by volume level. Highland Park 12YO Orkneyinga Legacy has been bottled at 46% ABV! Otherwise they are the same.
You can check out Orkneyinga’s product and background info from Highland Park’s website.
This whisky shouts I Am Legend
Being a HP fan, and already a big fan of the regular 12 year old expression of their range. It comes no surprise that I really loved this one.
I Am Legend has written all over this dram. Offering rich aromas and taste with typical HP12YO style. Only exception being that this time the palate is even stronger.
