    It's a pleasure to try this one, many thanks to Alex! The body and finish can't match the nose otherwise this would be a liquid dream and probably a grail for many Highland Park fans. It may also be due to the alcohol strength or the lack of it. It was bottled shortly before it was no longer allowed to call itself whisky.

    • Nose

      Honey sweet. Mixed with honeycomb and also wax underneath. A rather tart and strong type of honey. In addition malt and bread, as well as pebbles and lime. Old books, dusty pages, a bit of leather. Very light smoke rises and behind it rises a meadow with heather in full bloom. If the glass stands longer, some yellow fruits are added. Hallelujah.

      It goes on like this. There is also an old bourbon barrel note, which is always difficult to describe, but which is really rare to find in current bottlings. A little soap or lime flashes in between. Otherwise the heather is very dominant again, together with paper, especially old and dry.
    • Finish
      88 88
      A slight sweetness returns with a subtle fruity note. Malt and cabbage are also still there. Honey and wax stay in the mouth for a long time in a dry way.
