    A lovely highland park that’s easy & enjoyable.
    Colour: Pale straw.
    Nose: Honey, subtle peat, american oak, grass, dew, green pear, some chalk.
    Palate: Honey & ripened fruits but light. Very distant peat. White pepper. Bitter oak. Fennel. Green tea. Herbs. Some yellow pears.
    Finish: Medium. Sweet, white tea, light, easy & some honey dew melon. Quite moist.

    This one is a good highland park. Quite nice bourbon cask matured whisky. Or perhaps a refill sherry cask. Elegant and classic styled Highland Park.

    Good profile, good balance, elegant drinking.
    • Nose
      Dry grass, peat, earthy, smoke background, citrus (lemon), smoked notes, heather, a mixture of fried nuts, hint on the farm, not alcoholic, salty seaweed, ginger-vanilla gingerbread, dried fruits, coniferous nuances, juniper nuances notes, generally noticeably salty aroma (as if you are in a salt room), slips apricot, cookies, honey notes. The aroma is initially deceptive lightness and simplicity, gradually pours heavily and begins to sound.
    • Taste
      Citrus, herbaceous, meaty, salty, although fruity sweetness is palpable, herbaceous, smoked smoky, honey, cookies.
    • Finish
      Herbaceous, long-lasting, mineral, citrus, dried fruits, oily, smoked-smoky mango notes, sweet sauce for meat. Less salty.

    A nice Highland Park, but too expensive at $300cdn. For me anyways. Missing a certain je ne sais quoi I think.

      Creamed honey, heather, soft peat, white tea. A gentle Highland Park nose.

    Color gold

    The anonymous orkneys from bourbon barrels have so far exceeded my expectations by the bank, as well as this one. 86 points
    • Nose
      Ashy, dry wood, acacia honey, lemon peel, even with water a distinct alcoholic sting. Nitrile gloves. Wet pebbles, beaten flint stone. Opens up strong, grassier, more citrus, vanilla, green apples. Time takes away a bit of sharpness.
    • Taste
      Sharp start, medium volume. Earthy, grassy, lemon peel, unripe plums, green apples, black pepper. Dry chips, nutmeg. White ash.
    • Finish
      Long, slightly hot. Flint stone and ash, dominant tannins. Dry bitter. Pickled cucumbers, chlorinated water.
