- Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
Named after the saintly ruler of Orkney who perished at the hand of his treacherous cousin in the 12th century (and whose bones were discovered in the 1920s in the Kirkwall cathedral built in his honour), Earl Magnus is a 15yo cask strength Highland Park resplendent in the company's best packaging job for years. As such, expect it to sell out in a heartbeat. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

Not your typical Highland Park by any stretch of the imagination, yet a very, very high quality distillate nonetheless. The overriding American oak influence (ex-Sherry and not ex-Bourbon as some have mistakenly noted) lends lovely vanilla-citrus overtones to the flavour spectrum. And the whisky is beautifully balanced to boot!
I have to agree this is one of the best HP bottlings I have had the pleasure of tasting in a while.
It is probably one of the best I have tasted. Still have 3 bottles left.Little bit sweet and perfect.
