Highland Park Single Casks for Sweden…

In 2016 Highland Park released their first single casks since 2005. Here you can find information about the bottles being released so far for the Swedish market.

 

A short summary of the releases so far gives four have been released at Systembolaget, two at the Cinderella Whisky Fair, one for a private whisky club and one exclusively for a pub chain (meaning it has never been sold as a bottle to the public). The first three releases #6403, #2121 and Viking Soul stood out compared to the other single casks Highland Park released around the world by not having a jut bag accompanying the bottle. The rumor says it didn’t comply to Systembolaget’s strict rules for marketing alcohol beverages in Sweden. However, something must have changed because the jute bag came with the November 2017 release of Vintersolståndet.

Here you can find an updated list of all the Highland Park single cask releases since 2016!
