21 Year Old August 2019 Release
ABV : 45.2%
Volume : 750ml
A complex expression created from fewer than 20 casks laid down in 1989 and earlier years, our 30 Year Old Spring 2019 Release is the rarefied result of a trio of different cask types.
Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion, took the unusual step of bringing together three different cask types for this release. For sweet notes of vanilla and honey with hints of sharp citrus, he selected first-fill ex-bourbon casks; to add rich layers of stewed fruit and warm spice flavours, first-fill sherry seasoned casks were selected; and finally, a small but vital number of refill casks were called in to round off the harmony of flavours.
We’ve been crafting our awad-winning whisky at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition may define our single malt whisky, but it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in our whisky.
