Highland Park 70cl Cask Strength Single Malt Release No 2
The clue is in the name really. Cask Strength Release No. 2 is bottled straight from the cask, without adding water to reduce alcohol content, to deliver an extraordinary depth, complexity and balance of flavours.
Casks have a huge influence on the flavour, character and natural colour of whisky as it matures, so this Cask Strength series presents Highland Park whisky in its purest form, giving you the freedom to enjoy your whisky, your way. Discover the taste and strength that suits your palate by experimenting with the amount of water you add to reach your optimum flavour.
For this second release in the Cask Strength series, Gordon Motion, Highland Parks Master Whisky Maker, selected mainly sherry seasoned European and American oak casks, along with just a few ex-bourbon casks. You’ll find aromas of summer rose, ripe pear and fresh coconut gathering on a wave of aromatic peat smoke, followed by a wild harmony of sweet and spicy flavours - poached pear and rich almond cake, a drizzle of cloudy honey and a twist of salty liquorice. There’s the suggestion of toasted oak and intriguing notes of orchard fruits, black pepper and sweet aniseed linger, in a satisfyingly long finish. In a word (or three) Highland Park like to call it ‘smoky peppered praline’.
They have been crafting award-winning whisky in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition defines their whisky, but it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in their whisky.
