Highland Park Cask Strength Release No. 3

Highland Park Cask Strength Release No. 3

Ships in 3-5 business days.

Bottled straight from the cask, without adding water to reduce alcohol content, delivers the extraordinary depth, complexity and balance of flavors that’s now the established hallmark of Highland Park's Cask Strength series. Release No. 3 is no exception.

This third release has been created using an expertly balanced combination of three cask types – first-fill sherry seasoned American and European oak casks and a smaller quantity of refill casks for balance and depth. Using a higher proportion of Orkney peated malt, Master Whisky Maker Gordon Motion has achieved an intensely smoky character, coming through first on the nose with aromas of smoldering peat and lightly charred oak, balanced by honey-glazed lemons and crushed aniseed.

Discover what best suits your palate by experimenting with the amount of water you add as you release this whisky’s distinctive notes of ripe mango, cloudy heather honey and whipped vanilla cream with a hint of aromatic violet. Pink grapefruit zest, freshly-baked sponge cake and a final gust of heathery peat smoke provide a long and distinctive finish.

Highland Park has been crafting their award-winning whisky at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition may define this whisky, but it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavors found in Highland Park whisky.
