About Highland Park Cask Strength No. 4 Release

The 4th release of Highland Park Cask Strength is a unique single malt that was aged in first-fill sherry seasoned European and American oak casks, refill casks, ex-bourbon casks, and – for the first time ever – ex-port casks. All the barrels were handpicked by Master Whisky Maker Gordon Motion. This whisky is bottled straight from the cask, no water added, combining traditional craft with a modern twist. It opens up with enticing aromas of toasted coconut and crushed lemons, with a delightful hint of Turkish delight in the peat smoke, thanks to those ex-port casks. On the palate, you'll discover zesty pink grapefruit and fragrant rose water, expertly balanced by earthy toasted oak and heather-rich peat. The finish? An exotic blend of sun-baked spices and a ribbon of liquorice in a final breath of floral peat smoke. The 4th release in the annual series is bottled at a hefty 128.6 proof.

About Highland Park

Situated in the Orkney archipelago in Northern Scotland, Highland Park Distillery was founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson. The name of the distillery is derived not from the region of Scotland known as The Highlands — the Orkney islands are not a part of The Highlands — but rather from the region known as High Park, where the distillery was founded.

Today, over two centuries after its founding, Highland Park Distillery remains one of the few Scottish distilleries that continues to hand-turn, malt, and peat its own barley. "You have to be careful here on the malting floor," says Eric Tait, Highland Park's Maltman. "You find it can get a wee bit slippery underneath. I have to turn the malt every eight hours to prevent the roots getting tangled and to get it all aerated properly. The airing also helps it to grow. The malt will be on the floor for seven days, and I'm running five floors at the moment."

After malting the barley, Highland Park Distillery smokes it using peat sourced from Hobbister Moor, a peat bog located approximately seven miles from the distillery. Hobbister Moor peat is sourced from floral heather bushes, which burn hotter and cleaner than the grassy peats of Islay. Also, the peat sourced from Hobbister Moor has greater derivatives of carbohydrates and a lower concentration of lignin than peat from Islay, giving Highland Park's peat a unique chemical fingerprint.

The peat sourced from Hobbister Moor is "absolutely fundamental in understanding the flavor of Highland Park Whisky," says Russell Anderson, the distillery manager. Together with Orkney's unique environment (the temperate, moist climate of the archipelago results in an even maturation process), the peat gives Highland Park Whisky its traditional malty flavors that are tempered by just a subtle touch of smoke.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)

Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.

Toasted coconut, lemon zest, cedarwood, turkish delight, and a hint of peat smoke are on the nose. Look for grapefruit, floral, and earthy notes on the palate with toasted oak and peat. The finish is long with lingering licorice, spice, floral, and smoke notes.
