Highland Park Distillery Tour

The Orkney Islands are off the northeastern coast of Scotland. A place once inhabited by Vikings and their long ships. We didn’t encounter any Vikings while we were there because duh, it is 2018.

Cadenhead Small Batch 1988 Highland Park 25 years

I am certain many of you might have heard of Highland Park, but if you are not much of a whisky drinker maybe you don’t know about Cadenhead.
