HIGHLAND PARK 15 – PAIRING 680 500 Luca Cominelli

The Highland Park distillery is in Kirkwall, Orkney. It was founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson.

Contrary to what one might be led to think, the distillery name is not linked to the Scottish Highlands, but the area where it was founded the distillery, called “Highland Park”.

The price for the 15 years old bottle is 80€. The ABV is 40%. The availability is not high.

HIGHLAND PARK 15 YO

On the nose: a rich malt aroma, accompanied by spices and chestnut honey. There are also marine hints.
On the palate: particularly sweet. It gives off spicy and citrus (orange peel) notes. The honey is still well perceivable.
Finish: sweet. Fine spices, wood and herbs (medicinal).

CIGAR PAIRING

Alec Bradley Black Market Robusto: structured pairing and not among the simplest, due to the aromatic palette of the two products. Cigar and whiskey have a common line: the sweetness. The combination get developed on that: the fine spices of the Highland Park encounter the cinnamon and the piquant spices of the Robusto. The almond and leather notes from the Black Market are refreshen up from the orange peel delivered by the whiskey. What gives more pleasure, however, is the aftertaste: the herbs from the whiskey blend together with those of the cigar, developing a refreshing and very long aftertaste.
