Harmoniously wild and sweetly tart - hardly any other whiskey manages to combine apparent opposites in such an ingenious way.
A whisky adventure of a special kind. The Highland Park Cask Strength Release No. 2 from the Cask Strength series is a surprising new interpretation that celebrates the unmistakable character of Highland Park.
The special feature of the whisky is already in the name, because the Highland Park Cask Strength Release No. 2 is bottled directly from the cask, without the addition of water. Thus, the whiskey impresses with a fabulous depth and complexity, which nevertheless brings with it a sophisticated harmony of flavours.
Whiskey and the influence of the cask
It is well known that the casks have a significant impact on the taste, character and colour of the whiskey. For this special drop, mainly European and American casks were chosen that were stored with sherry, as well as a few selected former bourbon casks. A choice that makes for a veritable whirlwind of aromas.
What does Highland Park Cask Strength taste like?
Harmonious-wild and sweet-tart - this whisky combines opposites in an extraordinary way and creates a harmony that has it all. Aromas of summer roses, ripe pears and coconut combine with earthy peat smoke and ultimately transform into a fine rush of sweet almonds and honey, which in turn meet salty liquorice notes.
And the lingering finish is also quite something. There is a brilliant finish of burnt oak, fruit trees, black pepper and sweet aniseed.
What is Cask Strength Whisky?
This term is used to describe the cask strength of a whisky when it is made. It is the alcohol content by volume used for the whisky during its maturation, which is around 60 - 65% by volume. In contrast to mass-produced whiskies, which are already diluted with water during bottling, cask strength whiskies arrive in the bottle unadulterated.
Many producers use the dilution with water to make the whisky more "palatable" on the one hand and to reduce the production costs on the other.With a Cask Strength Whisky, however, the focus is on pure, unadulterated enjoyment. The perfect choice for whisky lovers.
Those who want their whisky to be a little milder, however, can also be happy here. Because the noble drop can be diluted with a little water and thus brought to the desired taste. So experimentation is definitely allowed here!
Playing with the whisky flavours
Adding a little water to a whisky has an enormous influence on the taste and character of the drink. Some flavours can be brought out even more strongly this way. Whether the water is added directly to the glass or in the form of ice cubes is up to you.
We recommend about 1/3 to 1/2 of water for the mixture. If you want to enjoy the Casks Strenght Whisky a little diluted, another advantage is that the contents of the bottle will naturally last much longer.
Because mixed with water, you not only get more nuances and flavour, but also more whisky for the same price- Yes, you have to let that melt on your tongue - in the truest sense of the word.
