The Highland Park Distillery, located on the main island of the rugged Orkney Islands, is said to date back to the 18th century. In any case, it is certain that in 1826 the distillery was granted a license to make single malt whisky. Highland Park (HP) has long been known for its own bottlings, especially because of its own character with notes of heather and a hint of peat smoke. HP is one of the few distilleries with its own malting floor and 'in house' cask storage. In 2017, HP released a new series of standard bottlings, with names that recall the Viking past of the Orkneys.
This 10-year-old 'Viking Scars' is a bottling in the new core series of Highland Park. The distillery profile is recognizable: a hint of smoke, heather and honey and subtle sherry tones. At around 40%, this is an easy drinkable single malt.
For those who are not familiar with Highland Park, or with single malt whisky in general, this 12-year-old Viking Honor is a nice introduction. This bottling covers the entire HP profile, with subtle peat smoke and sherry notes, heather, honey and vanilla

There's a good chance you'll win the bet if you say this Unnamed Orkney is a Highland Park whisky. In any case, Signatory Vintage matured this single malt whisky for 12 years in two bourbon casks (hogsheads) before bottling it at 46% in 678 bottles.
This Whitlaw single malt whisky is distilled by Highland Park, says the label on the Càrn Mor bottling by Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers. So it's just a Highland Park whisky. 7 years old, finished on scraped and re-charred casks and bottled at 47.5%.
