We are excited to share the news that Highland Park will release the first Single Cask in 9 years within Travel Retail which has been exclusively bottled for Viking Line to be released on the annual whisky fair on board Cinderella in February 2017. Cask No. 5734 has been carefully selected by Gordon Motion, Highland Park’s Whisky Maker. It is a refill butt cask distilled in 2003 and bottled 2016 at a strength of 63,1 % ABV, providing an exceptionally rich and spicy character. The strength is explained by the low humidity at the Highland Park warehouse and an excellent cask managing to retain the level of alcohol. This is the only refill but cask so far from 2003 that Highland Park is releasing and therefore an exceptional batch. The Single Cask has been bottled exclusively for Viking Line. A limited 300 bottles will become available and named ‘Bottled for Viking Line’. A truly unique product which has been chosen exclusively for Viking Line’s consumers.
