Highland Park ranks No1 in Spirits Journal 2010

Published:  01 June, 2010

Orcadian Highland Park single malt has been awarded top marks by US independent whisky expert Paul Pacult in his Spirits Journal 2010.

Distributed by Maxxium UK, the Highland Park 18 year old single malt ranks as the number one Scotch for the third consecutive time, while Highland Park 25 year old comes in at number 14.

Following its Best Spirit in the World awards in 2005 and 2009, Highland Park 18 year old was also included in Pacult's listing of "5 - Trapped-on-an-Island' Spirits That Sue and I Could Not Live Without."

Pacult said: "This classic continues to be a stupendous work of distilling art that, I believe, is one of the greatest beverage alcohol liquids ever produced and is assuredly the finest of the last 20 years. Graceful on the one hand; might and fathomless on the other. Delectably salty/peaty/maritime on the one hand; intensely malty on the other. If I could only select but one Scotch whisky, Highland Park 18 year old would remain that very special singular choice. A masterpiece to savour many times before one dies."

Gerry Tosh, head of brand education, said: "Paul Pacult's continuous support is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our team at the distillery. Highland Park 18 year old is the whisky we are most proud of and it has received the most plaudits from experts and enthusiasts alike."
