A D Rattray, Highland Park 1995 23 Year Old

At just half a mile beyond Scapa distillery, on the Isle of Orkney, Highland Park is the most northerly distillery in Scotland. This whisky has the typical soft smoky, briny character, and it also has beeswax candles on the nose and damp wood. The palate is oily in texture and mixes smoked meats and honey. Spice comes through on the back of the palate and brings the salinity together with the sweetness beautifully.
