Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 2003

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.27 points

  1. SAND scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    (TASTED BLIND)
    NOSE: Rubber boots, sherry cask, dried fruits. Mild peatiness. Later also honey and heather, old leather. (88p)
    TASTE: The arrival is intense, sherried. On the mid palate concentrated, quite tannic, lots of dried fruits, also a little sweetness. (88-89p)
    FINISH: Tannic, sherried, sligthly sweet, peppery, long. (87-88p)
    OVERALL: This has apparently improved with air since it was sampled out (my best tasting of this whisky so far). Total score 88 points.

  2. MaltNerd scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Unbalanced and spicy edition. Not quite my cup of tea.
    • Nose
      quite shy. Sugary profile. A lot of honey and citruses. Some vanilla and noticeable alcohol. After some time unpleasant dirty traces.
    • Taste
      sweet, sugar and sour citruses. Very spicy, we have here some pepper attack.
    • Finish
      burning alcohol, pepper, coffee, chocolate and some bitternes. Medium long.

  3. SAND scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Dried and stewed fruits. Moderately to quite intensely sherried. Not a sherry bomb but still the sherry cask almost completely overshadows the HP character. With time and air: Old leather. With water: unchanged.
    Taste: Rather dry, some roasted black pepper. Then mint and sweet, dried fruits. Very nice sherried whisky. With water: Rather unchanged, perhaps a little more black pepper.
    Finish: Dried fruits, sweet wood.
    Overall: Needs time to open up properly. Takes water well. 87-88p.
