You can get in on the ground floor with a first edition cask strength Highland Park Single Malt.
Highland Park is the most northerly distillery in Scotland on the Orkney Islands. Legend has it that it was founded by Whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson in the late 1700s and that he used his position as a church officer to conceal Whisky beneath the church pulpit. Don’t assume that "Highland Park" means their Whisky is made in the Highland style. In character, their Spirit is closer to a midpoint between Lowland and Islay Single Malts. Perhaps the most famous Whisky connoisseur of all time — journalist Michael Jackson — called Highland Park, "The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky."
Some folks spend their days dreaming of getting in on the ground floor of the latest tech startup. Sure, that’d be great. But today’s cutting edge tech is just as likely to be tomorrow’s has-been. We think getting in on the first edition release of a classic Single Malt from a place that’s been making it for more than two hundred years is as close to a sure thing as you can get. Highland Park Cask Strength Release No. 1 is the classic Single Malt that has won raving fans and Golden awards year after year. It is aged predominantly in American ex-Sherry casks and delivered at a full cask strength of 63.3% ABV for the very first time. It’s poured into the bottles straight from the casks without chill-filtering or colorings.

The aroma is nicely floral with heather and highland roses, butter toffee, and wood.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile has a light peat smoke in the background with more toffee, citrus zest, sultanas, and summer fruits dancing on top.
The finish is long, earthy, warm, and a bit smoky.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Highland Park Cask Strength No. 1 Release and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
