A superb 16 year Whiskey from the Highland Park distillery.
For the Highland Park distillery Twisted Tattoo has a double meaning: the innovative method of aging and the decoration of the bottle.
The Highland Park is the northernmost distillery in Scotland in the wild Orkney Islands offering a product of absolute quality.
Highland Park Twisted Tattoo is a novelty with aging in first fill Bourbon barrels and then aging in barrels ex Rioja, Spanish wine.
The risolateate of this particular aging method is a rich and full-bodied single malt whiskey with a distinctly different character.
Produced with an aging of 16 years in only 153 barrels, and in a few bottles, Highland Park Twisted Tattoo is a refined limited edition.
Even more special is the bottle containing Highland Park Twisted Tattoo.
In collaboration with the Danish tattooist and today's Viking Soul, Colin Dale, a bold design bottle was created for this whiskey, which celebrates tattooing as a sign of detachment and being part of a tribe - just like Highland Park.
Colin's intricate design is inspired by the free-flowing Nordic knot found on Viking wood carvings and reflects the Norse legend of the Midgard snake, which became so large that it twisted around the Earth to grab its tail in its mouth.
The nose is a profusion of floral notes, ripe white peaches and fresh flowers with a delicious fruit salad.
On the palate Highland Park Twisted Tattoo 16 years is creamy and full of canned fruit and espresso.
Caramel notes with thick black forest honey with a hint of citrus and vanilla.
The finish of the Highland Park Twisted Tattoo 16 years is long and well sweetened and slightly smoky.
Highland Park Twisted Tattoo 16 years is a whiskey to combine with a good Rattray's London Eye Tobacco and a Savinelli pipe.
