The Highland Park 17 Year Old Scotch Whiskies share the story of the noble Viking warrior ancestors and contrasting island seasons. Light and Dark are concepts that exist in opposition, yet together create a perfect balance. One cannot exist without the other; as one appears, the other disappears; together they create something greater than themselves – in nature, a perfect, continuous cycle.
The Light celebrates spring and summer in Orkney; a time to emerge from the winter’s hibernation, renewed and refreshed with a spring in our step, ready to embrace the warm bright days of summer. Presented in a beautifully embossed green glass bottle, the serpent dragon design takes its inspiration from the great Norse sagas and embraces both the high sun of the summer solstice and the low sun of the winter solstice – the polar opposites of the island seasons – while the runic writing reflects the ancient carvings of Viking ancestors which can still be seen today in Orkney. The light golden colour offers flavours of caramelised pear, nutmeg, vanilla, peat, cedar wood, oak and light smoke.
