This whisky was selected by Highland Park's Danish brand ambassador, Martin Markvardsen. The single malt was aged for 10 years in a combination of 70% American ex-bourbon barrels and 30% ex-Oloroso sherry casks. Formerly only released in Sweden, this bottling has since expanded its availability to several other European markets. It is not currently available in the US.

Tasting Notes

"Allow this to sit in the glass for a few minutes before you try it. The nose exposes some carnival candy notes such as cotton candy and caramel apples; it isn't hitting you over the head, but it's there. On the palate, it continues with more of these sweet elements and some toasted cereal notes. It is a soft whisky with barrel spices and a touch of peat found on the finish."
