Highland Park Cask Strength Release No.1

£54.50

Bottle Size 70cl
Alcohol 63.3% ABV
Age NAS
Cask Type Sherry / Oak
CASK STRENGTH RELEASE NO. 1 has been created using a higher proportion of sherry seasoned American oak casks which gives a sweeter, creamy, vanilla character rather than the spicy, dried fruit notes that are more prominent in the special edition cask strength that has been available in the Nordics.
Style Peated Cask Strength
Gordon Motion, the Highland Park Master Whisky Maker, wanted to give everyone who loves Highland Park the chance to experience the whisky in its purest from by bottling ‘straight from the cask’ without adding water. This gives the whisky a robust and intense flavour profile and a greater depth of finish.

Chill Filtered No
CASK STRENGTH RELEASE NO. 1 has not been chill filtered in order to reveal the whisky in its purest form with a distinctive natural haze. The whisky has been gently filtered to remove any pieces of char and other debris from the casks. However, in contrast to most other distilleries who generally filter at 0°C or below, CASK STRENGTH RELEASE NO. 1 has been filtered at ambient temperature so as not to remove any flavour from the whisky. As a result, it may have a very slight haze compared to whiskies which have been chill filtered.
Closure Cork
Colour/Appearance Amber.
Nose
Sweet and smoky on the nose with aromas of violets and ripe vanilla pods gathering on a wave of aromatic peat smoke.
Palate
Rich and full-bodied, soft toffee, heather honey and freshly grated nutmeg emerge on the palate, enriched by a concentrated tang of sun-ripened citrus fruits.
Finish
A long, lingering finish leaves the impression of warm crème brûlée and exotic Eastern spices.

Description

This is the first cask strength Highland Park Single Malt Scotch whisky to be released globally. There has been a previous special edition cask strength Highland Park, which has been only available in the Nordics in a 350ml sized bottle. The new CASK STRENGTH RELEASE NO. 1 has a different cask makeup and flavour profile from it.

Gordon Motion, the Highland Park Master Whisky Maker, wanted to give everyone who loves Highland Park the chance to experience the whisky in its purest from by bottling ‘straight from the cask’ without adding water. This gives the whisky a robust and intense flavour profile and a greater depth of finish.

It is intended to be a permanent addition to the core range, however it will be released in batches, each with a different cask make-up and flavour profile.
