series which they launched this time
last year, the Highland Park Cask
Strength Release No.2 has been bottled

Highland Park Cask Strength Release No.2

oak casks and a small quantity of
ex-bourbon casks which have been hand selected and
brought together by Highland Park's

designed the series to encourage
exploration of flavour.
Gordon Motion, said: "Cask Strength
Release No.2 celebrates the harmonious
balance of tastes in the classic
Highland Park style.
"I want to give everyone who loves
Highland Park the chance to experience
our single malt whisky in its purest
form, its full flavour allows you to
discover the taste and strength that
appeals to your palate by adding ice or
water according to your preference."
Bottled 100% in its natural state as it
came from the cask, no added water,

Morrison's Tasting Notes:
A lovely icing sugared sweetness, a
little orange oil, a touch of coconut, a
gentle distant heather honeyed smoke and
a wee touch of pepper.
Barley sugared almond and raisin with a
mild honey smoked edge leads, a tinge of
liquorice, a little pepper, a touch of
vanilla, oak spiced orange and lemon
citrus, some coconut.
Deliciously long, the barley sugars,
almond, fruit, gentle honeyed smoke and
oak tussle it out before bowing out to
leave some lingering peppery oak spice
and a lovely wee tinge of liquorice.
Comment: Smooth and delicious, a perfect balance of gentle
honey smoked sherry and bourbon cask
Highland Park and the cask strength
simply adds to the flavour pleasure, an
outstanding Highland Park. Highly
