  1. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A whiskey too light, lacking in pep and probably still young. A certain complexity / "jumble" emerges overall from this dram. (Tasted blind)
    • Nose
      Light nose (43,46 max), fresh, minty, grassy with a very light peat. On the end some sourness and lemon. (Tasted blind)
    • Taste
      Well it's clearly diluted with a very light attack. In spite of everything there is a certain dryness, sourness. Then behind a bottom of peat you can feel toffee and cocoa. Finally appears some spices. (Tasted blind)
    • Finish
      A beautiful length double face ... sometimes acrid and unpleasant, sometimes buttery and pleasant. (Tasted blind)

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample from Henri. I recognised the Bowmore straigth away, but the Highland Park is not so obvious.
    • Nose
      Peat, lime wine gum, apple, malt, orange, 7Up, salt, laurel and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Lime, peat, citrus, green tea, salt and toffee.
    • Finish
      Peat, toffee, lime and leaves.

  5. Luigisim scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Predominant notes of young Bowmore

  6. Mr. D. scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    And here is really a union of two distilleries. The Molts sang a duet, it turned out juicy, bright, tasty. My beloved Bowmore brought subtle, graceful notes to the complex and balanced HighlandPark.

  7. alectron scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      mineral/earthy smoke, grist/cereal, heather, some linen, lemon, (84)
    • Taste
      oily, smokey, mineral, quite austere, (84)
    • Finish
      slightly bitter briefly, spirit feels a bit raw, vanilla, lemon, more smoke, dry. (82)
      At the very end of the bottles life some of Bowmore's exostic fruit notes reared their heads as well (84)
