Highland Park Cask Strength Release No. 2
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 flavors.
Casks have a huge influence on the flavor, character and natural color of Highland Park whisky as it matures, so this Cask Strength series presents the whisky in its purest form, giving you the freedom to enjoy Highland Park whisky your way.
For this second release in the Cask Strength series, Gordon Motion, Highland Park's 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 flavors - poached pear and rich almond cake, a drizzle of cloudy honey and a twist of salty licorice. There’s the suggestion of toasted oak and intriguing notes of orchard fruits, black pepper and sweet aniseed linger, in a satisfyingly long finish.
