- Highland Park The Ambassadors Cask 2
Highland Park The Ambassadors Cask 2 Island single malt Scotch whisky. One of 594 bottles from cask #1071. This is the second release in a series of three cask strength ‘Ambassadors Casks’ from Highland Park.
The fiery spirit of the Orkney climate comes through strongly. The initial hit of alcohol is first to make the lips tingle. Once that begins to fade then the flavours are revealed. Brow sugar and then light fruits are first to arrive. Then a dry sherry sensation follows.
Highland Park Distillery
Highland Park Single Malt Whisky
Highland Park Distillery is the most northerly malt whisky distillery in Scotland and thus the closest Scottish distillery to the Arctic Circle. Highland Park was established on the periphery of Kirkwall in the Mainland of Orkney in 1825-26 by Robert Borwick, a merchant and straw plaiter in Kirkwall, and John Robertson who owned the land previously known as Rosebank but by 1825 known as Highland Park. Whisky had been distilled illicitly in the vicinity of the Parks of Rosebank by Magnus Eunson least as far back as 1798. Highland Park 12 Year Old, 18 Year Old and 21 Year Old are popular releases.
