Highland Park 17 Full Volume
For musicians, amps and equalisers maintain critical balance at high volume by fine-tuning musical frequencies – at Highland Park, their Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion, does a similar job.
Full Volume was created using 100% ex-bourbon casks rather than our traditional sherry-seasoned ones. During 1999, a combination of 481 casks – 200 litre barrels and 250 litre hogsheads – were filled at strengths of between 63.6% and 63.7%. The whisky was filtered at just over 4oC and delivers flavours of creamy vanilla and sweet citrus fruits from the bourbon casks, balanced by Highland Park’s characteristic aromatic smokiness.
Distilled 1999, bottled in 2017.
