Highland Park Cask Strength

Highland Park Cask Strength

Highland Park Cask Bottling Note

In a wonderfully 'does what it says on the tin' move, Highland Park has released a cask strength single malt named Highland Park Cask Strength! Joining the distillery's core range in late 2020, this expression was aged predominantly in sherry-seasoned American oak casks (chosen by master whisky maker Gordon Motion) and bottled without any chill-filtration at a hefty 63.3% ABV. A full-bodied whisky, showing off load of familiar Highland Park characterises: it's got the heather honey, it's got the sweet smoke, it's got the long finish. It's all there.

Palate: Ginger, nutmeg, heather honey, apricot and orange oil. Continued smoke builds, introducing earthy spices later on.

Finish: Warming peppery notes and a lingering hint of caramelised nuts.

Highland Park Cask Strength Reviews

Slightly high alcohol strength

Aroma and taste excellent. Water a must to enjoy it. The strength of alcohol means that other types of alcoholic beverages are experienced as juice. Is a whiskey that is difficult to compare with any other variety.

Better than expected

Didn’t have high expectations for this based on reviews but this was very good to me. Great balance of maltiness and sherry and just the right amount of hint of smoke. Great ABV of course too. I know many of us have had enough with the whole Viking thing from HP but I can’t argue with the quality of the liquid in this particular bottling.

Very good indeed

Loving this! I had pretty much moved away from HP because of both all that Viking marketing crap as well as lesser quality over the past few years IMO, but this cask strength is something else.

Ignore 1 Star Reviews from Snobbish Idiots

The review below is pure garbage and coming from either a place of snobbery, ignorance, prejudgement, or just plain bias. I’m also not a fan of the Viking “thing” and have not been impressed with the HP12 (once a classic, affordable go to) but credit where credit is due with this expression - rich, oily texture, well-balanced nose, long finish, good interplay between the fruit and oak notes, hints of smoke but subtle and integrated well. Now I can see how this may not be to everyone’s taste, I get it, but I cannot see how it can only be rated as 1 star and derided as swill to be thrown away. I thought it was very good and a really nice addition to the HP stable, I hope they move more in this direction.

Raw and Rough

Like many, I feel that HP whiskies have deteriorated over the past few years - the 12yo used to be one of my favourite drams but now I would give it house room. I decided to give this Batch 1 cask strength a try to see if it could change my mind about where the distillery was going - but it merely confirmed my view. I have many cask strength whiskies in my collection - from Ardbeg to Talisker, Laphroaig to Strathmill and many others including all the Campbeltown whiskies - but this Highland Park is the worst. It's raw and rough and thin and I'm left wondering what to do with it. Expensive screen-wash for my car, perhaps? if you read this, remember that all reviews are subjective and purely a matter of one man's opinion. You may well love it. Perhaps HP should focus less on the presentation and more on the content.

Hope you get some!!!

Tender and smooth start; a little oaky (to less for me); but every second in the mouth brings the finest hidden notes of salt, sea, and a little peat.. a long and wonderful finish.... a divine drink!
Just my opinion;
sorry for bad english

A true favorite

A deep and rich honey and oaky taste that turns in to a dry and intense kick of the 60 % alcohol and then settels in to a wonderful ligering taste of fudge , vanilla , sea salt and a hint of smokey peat.. a truley masterpice and true to the Noric viking legacy
