Highland Park has added 21 Year Old: August 2019 Release to its portfolio

Highland Park 21 Year Old: August 2019 Release was made using six first-fill Sherry-seasoned European oak casks, four first-fill Sherry-seasoned American oak casks, and five refill casks.

The whisky comprises “almost identical quantities” of liquid from each cask type, delivering an ABV of 46%.

Tasting notes include grated nutmeg, root ginger and sun-ripened orange peel, leading to ripe mango, pear and vanilla flavours. There is said to be a “subtle” touch of peat smoke on the finish.

Highland Park 21 Year Old: August 2019 Release is available to purchase via the brand’s online shop now, priced at £230 (US$283) per 700ml bottle.

Last month, Highland park partnered with Scottish Ballet to mark 50 years of the dance company with the launch of a limited edition whisky.

This followed the release of the brand’s most peated whisky to date the month prior.
