History of the Highland Park Distillery
The Highland Park distillery was established in 1798. Rather than popular belief, it’s not named after the Scottish Highlands, but rather after an area called “High Park” close by. As it is one of the few distilleries left that still uses a variety of traditional methods today, Highland Park believes in local and handmade resources for their whisky making. From malting part of the barley they use to blending locally cut peat with heather to use as fuel, Highland Park has always retained the importance of whisky-making traditions.
Highland Park Ice
Matured mostly in bourbon casks, it’s profile is most resembling to Freya, although this release is in honour of the Ice Realm of Niflheim.
Incredibly made for those who love a unique kind of finish, the Highland Park Ice is a very different whiskey. Featuring a clear colour, free of any additives with a pleasant and appealing finish.
Nose: Resplendent aromas of cool, fresh pineapples and shards of smoke give way to a hefty kick of root ginger.
Palate: Just like the Ice Giants, this palate is powerful yet mellifluous. True to Highland Parks style, peat smoke is entwined with hints of vanilla and even molten orris root.
Finish: The creamy and rich oily finish snowballs into long lingering woodiness and dry, feverish spices, providing a harmonious whisky to have and to hold.
