Highland Park Cask Strength (Release No. 1), 63.3%

Price: $90 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This first cask-strength expression in Highland Park's core range was matured predominantly in sherry-seasoned American oak. Honey, bonfire smoke, orange peel, and a suggestion of treacle on the nose. Sweet and smoky on the palate, with toffee and orchard fruits turning more citric in time. The finish yields sweet spices, more honey, dark chocolate, black pepper, and bonfire embers. Classic Highland Park—turned up to 11! Editors' Choice
