- 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.
Fruity, prickles in the nose, fleshy and wood,
Fruity, meaty, red fruit, concentrated red apple extracts, wood, caster sugar and strong in alcohol.
Basterd sugar, fruit, sweet, wood. At the end, he becomes a bit nasty.
- An excellent example where the sulfur gives a very nice taste. Beautiful bouquet, very beautiful dram.
- Bought on 02.04.2018 at Pall Center Shopping Village in Oberpallen for 110€
- 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
