Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 17-year-old

19 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.69 points

  1. Othorion scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Delicious Highland Park, no doubt! Sweet, delicious, even without water to drink well and even better with a few drops! But something in the quality class, there are already half of the money!
    • Nose
      87 87
      Mirabelle compote, creme brulee, vanilla pudding, pear juice, heather, very soft smoke, a little mint, lemon sorbet, with some lychee. Beautiful bourbon barrel nose. With a little water, the vanilla is even stronger and it comes to a delicate lilac
    • Taste
      88 88
      Creamy, lots of vanilla pudding, very well integrated alcohol, ginger, orange peel, allspice, salt water, licorice, honey, pears, almonds and subtly the smoke again.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Spicy and creamy with ginger and vanilla, with delicate citrus notes and roasted almonds. Beautifully harmonious and quite long!

  3. Kaleva scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very good whisky, light and complex. It was released as a summer expression (in opposing to The Dark) and HP succeeded with that very well - fruity and flowery character is easily recognizable. However, the price is set very high (around 200 euros while 28k bottles released - a bit strange price, right?) making this bottling rather collector's item than a daily dram.
    • Nose
      Fresh, sweet, lemon, vanilla, pineapple and honey notes, gentle smoke, more honey and meadow flowers after adding water
    • Taste
      Sweet, spicy (white pepper?), honey, fudge, walnut, pear, oak, lemon zest
    • Finish
      Medium-long, spicy, warm, nutty, slightly oaky, a touch of smoke

  5. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Premium bourbon maturing with many HP tickets.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fresh and floral. Citruses, Verbena candies, vanilla and yellow fruits.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Powerful. Apple juice, grape, vanilla, citruses and spices. Touch of oak and smoke.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long, spicy, bittersweet.

      citric fruits
    • Taste
      72 72
      exotic fruit (mango?), vanilla, hint of smoke
    • Finish
      72 72
      fruit, hint of smoke

  7. Sandman scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Salty, lemon, grapefruit, earth, peat, smoke, peach, melon, apricot, grapes, butter cake, floral honey and vanilla.

  8. Achany scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    spicey, some traces of black pepper, fine sweet heather, some vanilla and honey. the smoke is quite gentle (or I just did expect more of it). the ABV is well integrated. finish is nice, spicey and sweet all together. fine dram but if I would go for a bourbon HP this would be the Full Volume! (WSZ18)

  9. peatbogger scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    A very nice expression of a bourbon matured HP.
    Too bad about the price, it's not €200 nice.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Gentle and appealing.
      Fresh, citric, yellow fruit.
      Vanilla oak and light heather smoke.
    • Taste
      89 89
      It arrives sweet before the boldness of the ABV kick in.
      Well in tune with the nose.
      Warming spice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Good lenght.
      Neat it is warming and a little drying.

  10. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    In contrast to the 'Dark', the HP DNA is clearly visible here: clear, light-fruited, a little bit of smoke, a hint of maritime notes, quite typical for HP matured in the Bourbon barrel. Tasty and pleasant to drink, but not special.
    Again, the PLV is a joke.
