Released in November 2019, Highland Park 21 Year Old November 2019 was drawn from 9 first-fill European sherry seasoned oak hogsheads, 8 bourbon hogsheads, and 9 refill hogsheads. The result is a rounded and unique palate of warm spices and dried fruits balanced by the softer notes from the refill casks. Expect to find flavors of freshly cut pineapple, ripe mango, juicy pears, dried exotic fruit, sultanas as well as a hint of peat smoke. Bottled at 92 proof, this is a true single malt delicacy.
Situated in the Orkney archipelago in Northern Scotland, Highland Park Distillery was founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson. The name of the distillery is derived not from the region of Scotland known as The Highlands — the Orkney islands are not a part of The Highlands — but rather from the region known as High Park, where the distillery was founded. Highland Park is an incredible longstanding whisky house, and they pride themselves on their rich Norse heritage, an essence which is reflected in their craft.
