Highland Park releases its Dragon Legend
Highland Park single malt Scotch whisky has announced the arrival of its new single malt.
Dragon Legend has a richer and smokier flavour with an abv of 43.1% and it is priced at £40. For the next six months it will only be available in UK supermarkets and it will sit alongside its 12 year-old Viking Honour.
Jason R Craig, brand director, Highland Park, said: “Having recently re-packaged our existing 12 and 18 Year Old whiskies with striking Viking inspired iconography in April 2017, we were really keen to offer our consumers a new whisky to explore and enjoy.
“The result is Highland Park Dragon Legend, which is a step up in smoke profile from our core 12 Year Old having used a higher percentage of malt dried with our local Orkney woodless peat. This new whisky is still very much recognisable as a member of the Highland Park family with its key characteristics – from the use of both European and American sherry seasoned oak casks – of vanilla, warm spices complementing the richer aromatic peat smoke.”
Dragon Legend takes inspiration from the stories of the Vikings who rules Highland Park’s Orkney island home for over 600 years. For them, dragons were both feared and revered, possessing mystical powers but representing the forces of evil.”
Dragon Legend had an initial release is in more than 500 Tesco stores from the end of August and it is now available to other supermarkets.
