  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The second of the Orcadian Vintage series, 1968 Vintage was released in November 2009. Eight refill hogshead casks yielded 1,550 70cl bottles at a natural strength of 45.6% abv, each carefully chosen by Max McFarlane, Highland Park Whisky Maker. With its naturally golden hue, full-bodied flavour with hints of honey and lemongrass, the Orcadian 1968 Vintage is an exceptionally fine whisky that builds on the peerless reputation of Highland Park.

    Tasting Notes by Highland Park
    • Nose
      Reminiscent of thick, opaque honey but with attractive notes of lemongrass, sandalwood and a variety of aromatic spices.
    • Taste
      Reminiscent of thick, opaque honey but with attractive notes of lemongrass, sandalwood and a variety of aromatic spices.
    • Finish
      A lasting impression of rich spiciness is the legacy of a single malt that is extremely long and surprisingly sweet.

  2. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "A mix of seven hogsheads and one butt (all refill casks), Highland Park

    1968 is the second in the distilery`s Orcadian Vintage series. The

    packaging for this series is spectacular, with a heavy oak box featuring

    Viking design marquetry wood inlays and a handcrafted silver amulet on

    the front."
