Highland Park Keystone Series
A collection of special bottlings that highlight the five Keystones of production in the making of Highland Park.
On the malting floor, barley produces substantial heat as it germinates. So, every eight hours, for six days, they painstakingly turn the malted grain by hand to maintain just the right amount of moisture (5%) to fully absorb the intense aromatic smoke –the‘reek’– from the Hobbister Moor peat that smoulders in their kilns. Usually, the hand-turned floor maltings account for 20% of the malt used in Highland Park but, for this special release, they have used 100% to deliver a powerful intensity of peat smoke. SHIEL symbolises the effort they put in to every grain.
