After the dark comes the light, the release of "The Dark" early in 2018 showcased Highland Park in Ex-Sherry casks and now "The Light" showcases 100% refill American oak cask aged Highland Park and completes the series of two expressions.
Like The Dark it is a limited release of 28,000 bottles and bottled at natural colour and non chill filtered and at cask strength of 52.9%
The Light and The Dark both have the distinctive matching packaging of bespoke oak frame and booklet with the serpent dragon embossed on the front of the glass that takes its inspiration from the viking ancestry of the Orkney Islands.
Official tasting notes:
"Sweet flavours of heather peat, nutmeg and vanilla with caramelised pear, cedar wood and light peat smoke."
"Lovely balance and the high ABV doesn't interfere with play. A lovely drop." 8.4/10 The Whisky Magazine
