  3. 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)

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    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.

  8. Itsme1982 scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

    A wonderful 17 year old Highland Park, fairly easy to drink and if you add water this whisky is completely open.

    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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!
    • Finish
      Medium length with citrus notes, again slightly bitter pear skin, honey and butter.
