1 in stock
FIRE EDITION 15 YEAR OLD
This 15 Year Old single malt is encased in a specially-commissioned, crimson glass decanter, as an ode to the battle of fire and ice that signified Ragnarök, the end of the old word and the beginning of the new in Norse mythology.
Entirely matured in refill Port seasoned casks – a first for Highland Park – the result is a vibrant whisky with the natural hue of glowing flames. Damsons, cinnamon, dried fruit and chocolate dance on the tongue, before sizzling to an intense fruity finish.
We’ve been crafting our award-winning whisky at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition may define our whisky, but it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in our whisky.
ICE EDITION 17 YEAR OLD
Long winters, summer frosts, and impossibly fast winds. The things that can make Orkney a somewhat challenging place to live make it an exceptional climate for creating and maturing extraordinary whisky. In celebration of this, and as a nod to Niflheim, one of the nine worlds of old Norse mythology and the birthplace of ice, frost and fog, we created Ice Edition 17 Year Old. Matured in ex-bourbon casks, Ice Edition offers aromas of cool, fresh pineapple, and ripe mango sorbet, and is balanced with spicy smoke and ginger root. A special release with an ABV of 53.9%, it was released in spring 2016.
