Highland Park Distillery (Kirkwall, Scotland) has officially announced the North American release of MAGNUS, the distillery’s newest single malt offering.
Created to celebrate the name, 220-year legacy and ” relentless Viking spirit” of Highland Park founder Magnus Eunson, MAGNUS is a “bold” single malt whisky that has been matured in American oak first-fill sherry-seasoned and bourbon casks. This treatment produces a 40% ABV Scotch Whisky that offers “notes of sweet vanilla, overlaid with [Highland Park’s] distinctive aromatic smokiness.”
Available exclusively in North America, MAGNUS is beginning to hit shelves now for the suggested retail price of $39.99 per 750ml bottle (price may vary by location). You can expect to find this offering available at fine retailers, bars and restaurants in the US that normally carry Highland Park offerings. Prost!
