Highland Park Launches New 15 Year Old Single Malt
Orkney based distillery, Highland Park launches a new permanent 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Highland Park Viking Heart will be available in the Philippines by mid-November 2021. Presented in a heavily embossed ceramic bottle, created in partnership with renowned specialists U.K.-based Wade Ceramics; the inspiration of which came from ancient earthenware vessels which the whisky would have been stored a century or two ago at the distillery.
Highland Park 12 Viking Honour, Highland Park 15 Viking Heart, and Highland Park 10 Viking Scars
Created from casks hand-selected by Highland Park Masker Whisky Maker Gordon Motion, the 15 Year Old contains a high percentage of first-fill European oak sherry seasoned casks which delivers a warm, dry spicy note whilst first-fill American oak sherry seasoned casks back this up with notes of vanilla and crème brûlée. A small proportion of refill casks allow the DNA of Highland Park whisky to shine through, namely its gentle heather peat and lightly fruity character.
Gordon Motion, Highland Park, Master Whisky Maker, said: “Our insistence on specially constructed sherry casks delivers a richness of flavour. Vanilla and citrus notes lead and combine with the unique fragrant peat and creamy mouthfeel synonymous with Highland Park. The hand selection of quality first-fill and refill casks for Highland Park 15 Year Old delivers a rich colour which is 100% natural. Bottled at 44% ABV, this retains more of the compounds which deliver a whisky with extra body and enhanced mouthfeel.’
The Highland Park Viking Heart will be available for purchase from whisky retailers, specialty liquor shops and online retailers in Metro Manila as well as Boozy.ph, Clink.ph, Liquor.ph, Thirst.ph and Singlemalt.ph.
