https://www.whiskynotes.be/2017/highland-park/highland-park-the-dark-17-years/

Highland Park The Dark 17 yo (52,9%, OB 2017, 28.000 btl.)

Nose: a slightly subdued nose. There are sweet blackberries and fig pastry but mainly spices. Cinnamon sticks and roasted (chest)nuts. Soft hints of metal polish.
Mouth: again a fairly spice-driven sherry profile. Roasted nuts and coffee beans, dark malt, including a light bitter edge of Seville oranges. Then strong herbal tea, juniper and clove. Cinnamon cake. Some heathery smoke towards the end.
Finish: long, fairly dry, with smoky notes, herbs and a bittersweet dark chocolate edge.

A fairly dry and spicy expression, perhaps more influenced by the type of wood than by the sherry itself. I started with a lower score but it really grew on me. A bit expensive for what it is, I think, but I admit it looks great.

Nose

zacht, lichte turf. 

Taste

aandronk is teleurstellend, vrij "hard" in de mond. Wordt later beter. 

Finish

Echte Highland park, lang. 

Comments

Ik was een beetje teleurgesteld, had er meer van verwacht. Vooral de eerste nip uit het glas valt tegen, aanval op je smaakpapillen.

Nose

Complex. Sherry, black currant, prune, cinnamon, ginger, salted caramel, fig and orange peel.

Taste

Sweet and spicy. Malt, sweet fruits, orange, milk coffee, cinnamon, chestnut puree, juniper and mild wood smoke.

Finish

Long, dry, bittersweet.

Comments

Surprisingly spicy, not the sherry dominate. Matured, nice HP, but it's a bit expensive.
