    Notes from Serge Valentin:

    64.1% this time! Mind you, in Belgium those shrimp croquettes won’t deep fry themselves... Colour: light amber. Nose: this one is a little more easy on the approach. Some grass, green tea, cocktail bitters and even some rather elegant fruit notes of papaya, green apple and melon. Also a wee hint of agave nectar and runny honey. With water: more towards classical HP now, developing along lines of breads, heather ale, barley water, graphite, wood spices, pollens and some sandalwood. Mouth: surprisingly green and fruity, notes of lemon peel, freshly baked breads, chopped herbs, herbal teas, gooseberry and some sweet cereals. Surprisingly easy given the strength. With water: nicely syrupy in texture, still these ripe green fruits, sweet cereals, putty, olive oil, grapefruit and cough mixtures. Finish: long, sooty, oily, hints of lemon, caraway, bay leaf and even some very light phenolics. Comments: Someone got up bright and early in Belgium to select this cask. Feels like the distillery character is very much in the driving seat here, which I love.
    SGP: 662 - 88 points.

    An excellent example where the sulfur gives a very nice taste. Beautiful bouquet, very beautiful dram.

    Tasted this single cask from Highland Park at Whisky Live Belgium 2018.

    I don't like all SC I've tasted from HP, but this one is very nice.

    Hints of Honey, figs, chocolate, vanilla, sherry

    Very sweet.
