Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Blumige Süße, Zitronenbonbons, Vanille, frisches Heu, Zuckerguss, ein wenig mineralisch bis maritim, ein wenig aschig im Hintergrund 

Taste

Süß, mehr Vanille als in der Nase, schön cremig, perfekte Alkoholstärke, Brausepulver, wieder etwas mineralisch, keine Bitterkeit 

Finish

Hier nun ganz leichte Eichenbitterkeit, sehr Springbank-like, schön mineralisch, die Zitrusnoten sind wieder sehr präsent, länger Abgang, ohne zu überfordern 

Comments

Ein sehr schöner Highland Park. Mit dem Charakter sollten die einfach viel häufiger auf Bourbonfässer setzen.

Story
For musicians, amps and equalisers maintain critical balance at high volume by finetuning musical frequencies – at Highland Park, our Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion, does a similar job. FULL VOLUME was created using 100% ex-bourbon casks rather than our traditional sherryseasoned ones. During 1999, a combination of 481 casks – 200 litre barrels and 250 litre hogsheads – were filled at strengths of between 63.6% and 63.7%. The whisky was filtered at just over 4 C and delivers flavours of creamy vanilla and sweet citrus fruits from the bourbon casks, balanced by Highland Park’s characteristic aromatic smokiness.

Apple juice, peach, white wine, pineapple, vanilla and peat.

Taste

Peach, apple juice, peat, vanilla and wine gum.

Finish

Apple, peach, peat, cookie and wine gum.

Comments

I like this one a lot and I'd almost give it an extra point for the Spinal Tap reference on the box. Just a pity that an edition with this name isn't bottled at cask strength.

Color

Nose

Tropical fruits, orange peel, vanilla and cereal. Touch of peat, tobacco and antique leather.

Taste

Sweet, creamy, oily start. Honey, vanilla, malt and fruits. Then big oak, pepper and herbals.

Finish

Medium length, fruity, spicy. Mild smoke.

Comments

Interesting, unusual HP flavors without sherry with a massive oak and spices. Hard to scoring, must be retaste. 86/87.

Nose

Sweet, fruity, tropical fruits, passion fruits, fresh oranges, dessert wine, whiffs of smoke and leather - pretty good

Taste

Punchy, oily, liquorice, creamy, fruity again, more on grapefruits, hints of vanilla, spices, pepper, hints of oak wood

Finish

Medium long, warm, more and more bitter - actually not drying but more like bitter fruits

Comments

Quite interesting - at least not boring

Eine frische Symbiose aus süßen, fruchtigen und floralen Aromen hebt sich aus meinem Glas. Frisch gepresster Zitronensaft, Getreide, mineralische Aromen und schöne Vanillenoten werden zusätzlich von hellen Früchten unterstützt, welche leicht ins tropische Spektrum abdriften. Birnen, Aprikosen, gezuckerte Ananas, Mangos und ein Hauch von Blütenhonig sind wahrnehmbar. Tief verborgen im Hintergrund weht ein zartes Rauchfähnchen, welches mich ein wenig an Zigarren- oder Pfeifenrauch erinnert. Der Alkohol (47,2%) macht sich anfangs ganz leicht in der Nase bemerkbar.

Taste

Sehr cremig und intensiv. Eine wunderbare Süße rinnt die Wangen entlang, während auf der Zungenspitze eine zarte Pfeffrigkeit einsetzt und ein leichtes Prickeln verursacht. Reichlich Vanille, Zitrusfrüchte, Getreide, unreife Orangen, Ananas, Mangos und Kokosnüsse verleihen dem Malt eine enorme Frische und eine süß-tropische Fruchtigkeit. Der Alkoholgehalt passt geschmacklich perfekt, die Harmonie und Balance des Highland Park ist schlicht sehr gut. Die Aromenvielfalt gewinnt zusätzlich noch an Tiefe: Mineralische Noten, Anklänge von Kräutern, angenehme Eiche und feiner Zigarrenrauch setzen im Hintergrund einen schönen Kontrast zu den süßen Früchten.

Finish

Mittellang, süß-würzig und wärmend. Leicht pfeffrig und mit vielen hellen Früchten startet das gut ausbalancierte Finish. Wieder finde ich Zitrusfrüchte, Aprikosen, Vanille und mineralische Noten. Der schöne Zigarrenrauch gewinnt ein wenig an Kraft, verbleibt jedoch eher im Hintergrund. Kräuter und würzige Eiche lassen den Malt langsam ausklingen und hinterlassen eine minimale Bitterkeit am Gaumen.

fresh, green apples, fruity, some nice citrus in there as well. Malty, even a bit grassy, fine oak spices. Very nice peat influence, clearly visible. the absence of sherry casks is really nice. the finish could be a bit longer but it is still all right. Very fine dram, gentle fruity peat! Well done!
