Highland Park CS No.3

The third installment of Highland Park's Cask Strength series is here! Master whisky maker Gordon Motion opted for a higher proportion of Orkney peated malt than previous releases, resulting in a richly smoky profile. The single malt was matured in a combination of first-fill and refill sherry seasoned American and European oak casks, rounding off the hearty peat smoke with zesty layers of fruit and warming spice. Bottled up at a cask strength of 64.1% ABV, a drop of water certainly helps to bring out layers of soft fruit and floral malt beneath the intense smoke.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Hefty layers of smouldering peat and earthen ash, with whispers of oaken vanilla, floral tea, and grilled mango joining in time.

Palate Rich, roasted barley with charred heather and spiced honey. Peat smoke rests boldly at the core, with a tarry, oily character balanced by flamed citrus zest.

Finish Notes of toasted, buttered fruit loaf emerge, along with drizzles of citrus oil, while the dense, floral smoke lingers with a prickle of peppery spice.

Quality and flavour
Although not as much for me as I'd hoped, this still deserves to be called excellent. Amazing flavours.

Really good stuff but my personal preference is the no 2 as it has a more honey/sweeter palate and a little less peat smoke finish compared to the no 3.

Packs a punch
This Highland Park cask strength 3 packs a punch, lots of flavours.
Nose: Jasmine and mango tea, smouldering peat fire.
Palate: lots of honey, barley, fruit loaf, aniseed, leather, peppery spices and raisins. Lovely oily mouthfeel. A dash of water(which it needs)brings out more sherry notes. Favourite of the 3 so far.

Would purchase by the case
This is what we were looking for in a Cask Strength Release.
Release 1 and 2 did not hit the mark of Orkney Peat.
This one fulfills on the nose and the pallet.
With everything turned up to 11.
What a sublime release.
Still working with adding water to my pour and so far, with near a tablespoon of water it has not broken it and brought out subtle flavors you would not find without doing so.
