Whiskey with a Viking Soul

Chad Chisholm

When viewing the bottle, one can almost smell the scent of sea air, hear the call of gulls and the crash of surf. The beautiful knotwork on the bottle an homage to the Scottish Highlands: visions of bright green meadows and stony outcroppings peppering the landscape. The Orkney Single Malt Scotch with Viking Soul, Highland Park has announced its new, annual (and permanent) line to their portfolio of whiskies: the Cask Strength Series.

Gordon Motion, Highland Park master whiskey maker comments: “A cask strength whisky is very much made the traditional way but it doesn’t have to be enjoyed so its full flavor allows you the control to discover the taste and strength that appeals to your palate by adding ice or water according to your preference.” 

The sweet and smoky notes are perfect to enjoy by a warm fire, with a pronounced vanilla character and flavors of soft toffee, honey, nutmeg and sun-ripened citrus. Whether experiencing in your newly-conquered castle or by your own stone hearth, the SRP $90 bottle of the No. 1 Release will have you feeling regal and victorious with the straight-from-the-cask whiskey.  Check local specialist whiskey retailers for availability.
