Highland Park unveils new Cask Strength series release

Orkney-based distillery Highland park has launched the second whisky in its cask strength range.

Highland Park Cask Strength Release No.2 will be available globally from August 2021.

The 'straight from the cask' method sees whisky bottled with no water added after maturation, to deliver a more intense and robust flavour.

Created by Highland Park's master whisky maker, Gordon Motion, the cask strength series is designed to encourage exploration of flavour. Gordon said: "Cask Strength Release No.2 celebrates the harmonious balance of tastes in the classic Highland Park style.

"I want to give everyone who loves Highland Park the chance to experience our single maly whisky in its purest form. Its full flavour allows you to discover the taste and strength that appeals to your palate by adding ice or water according to your preference."

The cask strength series is a permanent fixture of the Highland Park range, comprising whiskies that showcase the distillery's house style with different flavours coming to the fore based on the cask make-up. 

Cask Strength Release No.2 has been matured predominantly in sherry-seasoned European and American oak casks, as well as a small quantity of ex-Bourbon casks. Highland Park says this has resulted in flavours of pear and almond cake, toasted oak, liquorice, black pepper and aromatic peat.

The whisky will be available to purchase from specialist whisky retailers and from Highland Park's online shop and Albert Street store.
