Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 2003 Arc

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.08 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    N- Barley field, green cut grass with soft sherry drifting along so well on the nutmeg and malt barn nuance. Dominant notes of aggressive zest of poached pear with spices that get peppery overtimes. Delicious notes of flower tea, cacao brown chocolate and brandied raisin emerged with well evolves oak characteristic, minty honey and sweet cigar smokes dressed at the end to keep the closing exciting. (94/23)

    P- Deliciously sweet with pounded dusty peppercorns, coffee with hefty charred smokes arises, spicy, firm and dissolved well on palate without getting weak. Chewy, lightly tart and sweet cherry liqueur with wooded honey. (92/23)

    F- Long and silky, herb infused dried fruit candy, pruney, warming and spicy with subtle tannic remains for chewy aftertaste. (91/22)

    Body/Balance:- 95/23

    Weighted Rate:- 91pt
