ADAM'S LIQUOR CABINET

 

Brown & White spirits are expanding in the market with NEW products being introduced almost daily. Adam will guide you through the latest and the greatest as well as the tried & true.

 

This month's spotlight is on Highland Park Magnus.


Magnus is a new single malt scotch in Highland parks core lineup. This is not a limited edition offering, and is here to stay. Thankfully too, because this dram is fantastic for what it is.

 

Light Orcadian peat; the signature HP floral style. Bold and rich, but easily approachable. Heather honey upfront, peat on the end. Other staple flavors include a little dried fruit flavor, along with a hint of sea salt. Slightly sweet along with a nice bit of malt in there.

 

While this doesn't have the most depth out there, and any Scotch connoisseur can taste the lack of age, I have to say for a Highland Park NAS Single Malt Whisky, this is an amazing every day Scotch in this price range, especially if you are a Highland Park fan.

 

I would rate it a 9/10.

Our Story

Magnus Eunson was a direct descendant of the Vikings who settled on Orkney hundreds of years ago. He set up his illicit still in a bothy (a small stone hut) at High Park, Kirkwall that’s still the site of our distillery today. And, while we say Highland Park was founded in 1798, in truth that’s just the year that the authorities caught up with Magnus – he was certainly making whisky before that!

We stay true to our founder’s bold and uncompromising approach to whisky making – very little has changed here in the last 220 years. In MAGNUS, we celebrate this unbroken tradition with a single malt whisky, matured in Sherry seasoned American oak casks, that delivers notes of sweet vanilla, overlaid with our distinctive aromatic smokiness.
