    Nose: The deep and long sandalwood, no impurity walnut furniture breath redefined the consistency, honey, sweet tobacco, maple syrup, hot black tea, medlar hot yellow wine, proper amount of caramel and cinnamon, the end is a little mint gum, the fragrance of cup mouth lingers and lingers, constantly absorbing me to go.

    Palate:It's still deep. Black coffee, dark chocolate, cigar box, tobacco, oak, roasted almond, cream cheese cake, fruit sugar, soy milk, grape seeds, pecan, cinnamon sugar powder are at the end. The liquor is smooth, pure and continuous, like a matte black color, and flashes the other side of dark brown from time to time.

    Balance&Body: It is a medium weight wine with rich fat and excellent texture. The wine has a grand structure and perfect balance. Wine power flickers, does not anger from the prestige, like is embedded in the deep black pearl reminds people of its existence, bewitches people to deliver the soul to it.

    Finish: Slow and long, charred coffee, hazelnut dark chocolate, walnut, roasted almond, tobacco, hottoddy.

    Colour: deep amber – bronze.
    Nose: fantastic attack on espresso
    coffee and dried herbs, with also
    lots of leathery notes (horse saddle).
    Strong pipe tobacco (Balkan sobranie),
    walnut liquor, cigar box…
    Very, very ‘male’, whatever
    that means. Keeps on developing,
    on soy sauce and fresh fruits such
    as granny smith apples – and
    also dried oranges and pineapples.
    Whiffs of smoke. Really a stunner,
    with no weakness due to age. Mouth:
    extremely sweet and smooth, with
    a creamy mouth feel. A perfect balance,
    with a bit of icing sugar at first,
    followed by bunches of dried fruits
    (Smyrna raisins, bananas, figs)
    and toasted nuts (pecan, almonds,
    peanuts). Cake, Virginia tobacco…
    Some eucalyptus candies, mint drops…
    Notes of old claret, cinnamon and
    a bit of clove, getting spicier
    and spicier. Rose jam, Turkish delight…
    Hugely complex and fabulously balanced,
    with a rather long, smoky and dry
    finish – and also a little
    spearmint to give it a little extra-freshness.
    Exactly the kind of malt I’d
    like to sip in a club, with a great
    cigar. Too bad I never go to clubs
    and I don’t smoke cigars anymore!
    95 points.

    Producer's Note

    Appearance: Deep orange. Aroma: Sweet tobacco. Scenty. Sandalwood. Walnuts.
    Palate: Sultanas, lemons, vanilla, butterscotch, toasted almonds. Very restrained sweetness.
    Finish: Long and soothing. Late hint of spicy, heathery smoke to provide a balancing dryness.

    The 1958 is presented in a wooden presentation box which also contains a unique hand-blown, hand engraved Caithness Glass Decanter depicting the stone circle at the Ring of Brodgar on Orkney, with a solid glass stopper featuring the "H" and a specially commissioned hardback book celebrating both Whisky and Orkney. All items are numbered (e.g. 1 of 665) and Jim Robertson, Highland Parks previous Distillery Manager, has personally signed each book.
