Cask Strength
Release No. 1

ABV : 63.3%

Volume : 750ml

Casks have a huge influence on our whisky. As our new make spirit slowly matures inside them, the casks use these long years to impart their vast array of robust flavours.

When you bottle straight from the cask, without adding water to reduce alcohol content, it follows that what you are going to taste is our whisky - and the cask’s influence - in its purest form.

Cask Strength Release No. 1 is matured predominantly in sherry seasoned American oak casks of different ages, hand-selected by Gordon Motion, our Master Whisky Maker. It is then directly bottled - not chill-filtered - to ensure the essential DNA and natural colour of our whisky stays intact. There is nothing in this single malt whisky other than the whisky itself. Nothing but the intensely balanced, award-winning spirit of Highland Park.

It is at once sweet and smoky on the nose, with aromas of violets and ripe vanilla pods amidst waves of aromatic peat smoke. On the palate, it is rich and full-bodied, with soft toffee, heather honey, freshly grated nutmeg and sun-ripened citrus fruits that give way to an exotically spiced crème brûlée finish.

Our stock of Cask Strength Release No. 1 for the online shop has now sold out, however bottles are still available from specialist whisky retailers around the world.

We’ve been crafting our award-winning whisky at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition may define our 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.
