Three esteemed whisky makers from Highland Park collaborate for the first time in order to create this Orkney-based distillery’s limited edition single malt whisky. In celebration of their whisky-making experience spanning over 100 years, the master whisky makers namely, Gordon Motion, John Ramsay, and Max McFarlane, came together to produce Triskelion, which highlights Highland Park’s distinctive character.
The single malt whisky is named Triskelion when three master whisky makers are at play in its creation. This limited edition variety is a product of expertise and was made out of the combination of (1) first-fill sherry-seasoned Spanish oak butts, (2) first-fill sherry seasoned American oak casks, and (3) first-fill bourbon barrels and hogsheads.
Bearing an unadulterated colour of deep russet, the clear and bright Highland Park's Triskelion whisky evokes sweet aromatic notes. One may find Seville oranges, coriander, seeds, crème brulée, honey, and even hints of rose in its lightly peaty character. On the palate, Triskelion whisky has notes of orange peel, apricots, cumin, vanilla, and light smoke. Orkney whiskies are known for their balance of peat and heather. Hence, Triskelion whisky highlights that unique and delicate combination, with its short finish marked with lingering sweet and citrusy aftertaste accentuated with spice.
