Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 17-year-old
14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.81 points
- Salty, lemon, grapefruit, earth, peat, smoke, peach, melon, apricot, grapes, butter cake, floral honey and vanilla.
- 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)
- A very nice expression of a bourbon matured HP.
Too bad about the price, it's not €200 nice.
Gentle and appealing.
Fresh, citric, yellow fruit.
Vanilla oak and light heather smoke.
It arrives sweet before the boldness of the ABV kick in.
Well in tune with the nose.
Neat it is warming and a little drying.
- 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.
- The nose is light, peaty and sweet with notes of heather smoke, sweet fruits and white fruits. The palate is sweet and spicy with notes of sweet fruits, caramel, white fruits and dust. The finish is long with notes of spices, oak, dust, vanilla and sweet fruits. It’s a light, smooth, tasty and easy drinkable whisky.
- A wonderful 17 year old Highland Park, fairly easy to drink and if you add water this whisky is completely open.
Beautiful exBourbon nose with sweet bright fruits. There are pears, bright grapes, apricots and maybe some pineapple. This is accompanied by a nice hint of vanilla and light peat with lots of herbs and a hint of smoke. Overall, the nose is very compact and full. The alcohol is very nicely involved. A few drops of water soothe the malt and make it more elegant, floral.
Strong start with neat spice, herbs and pear peel, which brings some bitterness with it. Tingling on the tongue and becoming increasingly sweeter. You can taste the wood, minimal smoke, marzipan and a few citrus flavors. Water makes the Highland Park a bit creamier but somehow intensifies it. He gains fruit. Exciting!
Medium length with citrus notes, again slightly bitter pear skin, honey and butter.
