The Orkney Islands-based Highland Park Distillery announces their Cask Strength series No. 1. This will be the first of more expected cask strength limited-edition releases. Highland Parks master whisky maker Gordon Motion, blended selected various aged single malts for this project. Cask Strength No. 1 was married in American Sherry-seasoned casks.
“A cask strength whisky is very much made the traditional way but it doesn’t have to be enjoyed so. Its full flavor allows you the control to discover the taste and strength that appeals to your palate by adding ice or water according to your preference” said Motion. “I want to give everyone who love Highland Park the chance to experience our single malt whisky in its purest form by bottling ‘straight from the cask’ but allowing you to choose the strength you want to drink this special single malt.”
Highland Park Cask Strength Edition No. 1 is bottled at a powerful 126.6 proof (63.3% ABV). Already released in September 2020. This introduction release will be at $90 MSRP for the 750-ml size bottle.
