Highland Park Saint Magnus

Country: Scotland

Region: Highlands

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 55%

Score: 94 Points

The second in a line of malts honoring historical figures on Orkney, this malt has a nose of dried apples and peaches, orange peel, and honey with cinnamon undertones and a kiss of smoke. The taste is thick, spicy, intense, and slow to fade. When it does, there’s a smokiness that becomes evident, along with a touch of caramel candy underneath. The finish is lingering with touches of vanilla and a smokiness that curls up the back of your throat.
