There's always a bit of theater involved when it comes to Highland Park's limited edition bottles. The company has drawn from Norse Mythology once again for its latest special bottling, the Ice Edition. Issued in a run of 30,000 bottles, the 17 year old whisky is encased in a bottle that evokes a crystal ice shard and sits inside a matching oak wood cradle. Tasting notes are described as having aromas of fresh pineapple and ripe mango sorbet with peat smoke and vanilla seed that transitions into a woody and spicy finish.
