Highland Park Fire
The second instalment in the this new collection from Highland Park.
Highland Park fire Edition is a special release 15 year old single malt which has been matured in 100% refill Port wine seasoned casks – a first for Highland Park.
This follows on from the release of ice Edition and completes the two-part series of special edition bottlings which celebrate some of the myths and legends emerging from the Viking age.
This stunning expression tells the story of the realm of the Fire Giants and their epic battle against the Gods to rule the world. According to legend, Surtr was an evil Fire Giant who ruled the Fire Realm. He would sit at the edge of the Kingdom, defending the land holding a burning sword, which shone brighter and hotter than the sun.
Tasting Notes: Natural in colour, the vibrant and intense aromas of ruby red fruits and warm vanilla complement the fiery bitter sweetness of cinnamon bark and the richness of devilishly dark chocolate.
Secondly - The packaging:
Highland Park fire Edition packaging has been designed to bring to life the tales of Viking mythology. The exquisite crimson red coloured glass was specially commissioned to represent the fierce and molten world of the Fire Giants. The bottle is encased in a distinctive black wooden cradle with accompanying black wooden stopper. The front of the bottle features a Norse symbol representing the creation of the world, which they believed was protected by a serpent named Jormungandr, biting his own tail.
Fire Edition is a special release of 28,000 bottles
