Highland Park 21 Year 2019 Scotch Whiskey
Gordon Motion, our Master Whisky Maker, hand selected almost identical quantities of first-fill sherry seasoned European oak casks, first-fill sherry seasoned American oak casks and refill casks to demonstrate the impact of different cask types on the intense balance of our whisky.
Each cask has been matured in our island warehouses for a minimum of 21 years. This is an ideal period as it allows the rich flavours of the first-fill casks to come vibrantly to the fore – spices and dried fruit from the European oak casks and vanilla and citrus notes from the American oak casks. Introducing refill casks balances the influence of oak from the first-fill casks, while bottling the whisky at its marrying strength of 46% delivers a rich and deep finish.
Our 21 YEAR OLD AUGUST 2019 RELEASE displays the fine maturity of character that befits a whisky of this age and delivers a perfect harmony of spice and fruit on a wave of the aromatic smoke that is the hallmark of Orkney’s unique heather peat.
