Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1990

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.36 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I got half a bottle from Menno of Whiskybase. He thought this HP was far too woody. A sherry and tanninic monster it is indeed. Not for the ones who like their whisky gentle and subtle. I like this style of whisky though.
    • Nose
      Very powerful with lots of tannins. Heavy sherry. Stewed fruits. Leather and Tobacco. Old furniture and coffee.
    • Taste
      Rough. Like biting in wood! Full bodied tannins all the way. Sharp and spicy as well. Dark chocolate and some mint.
    • Finish
      Long and dry. Becomes quite salty at the end.

    I really love this sherried bomb!

    It is a bit of a rough whisky indeed, wich I like to happen to like.

    Real shame it is just half a bottle... (35cl). Damn!
