Highland Park Full Volume breaks away from the usual Viking theme and brings music analogy instead. To achieve the perfect balance in whisky is like tuning different musical frequencies into the final harmony.
The box the whisky is presented in represents two amplifiers and on the side of the box there are dials that represent the levels of each flavor in the whisky. Highland Park Full Volume has been matured exclusively in ex-bourbon casks (200-liter barrels and 250-liter hogsheads), total of 481, filled in 1999. No sherry wood has been used in creating that expression. The whisky was chilled at 4ºC and bottled at 47.2% abv.
