THE SECOND WHISKY IN THE ANNUAL C CASK STRENGTH SERIES.
Highland Park Cask Strength will be released in annual batches, each of which will share the same underlying character but with nuanced flavors based on the specific cask make-up. Like all releases, Cask Strength No. 2 is non-chill filtered and dials in at 63.9% ABV (No. 1 was 63.3%). The Master Whiskey Maker, Gordon Motion, selected a majority of sherry-seasoned European and American oak casks, and a small quantity of ex-bourbon casks leaving a taste profile with nuanced pear, almond cake, toasted oak, licorice and cracked black pepper. This varies from the No. 1 release with tasting notes of soft toffee, heather honey and freshly grated nutmeg due to the mix of predominately sherry-seasoned American oak casks.

Leaving you with the flavors, textures and natural haze that would normally be stripped away by finer filtration. The whisky has only been gently filtered to remove pieces of char and other debris from the casks.
