    21.5-22-21.5-22 again against the background of the old 12ki and 1967 a little lost

    Tasted semi-blind... hard to pull one over on me with that Label ;0)

    That being said, the moment you stick your nose in that glass; and HP comes running full force in that unmistakable earthy peat I find in good Highland Park.

      Oh man! Maritime boats, seaside piers, earth peat and a touch of salty brine. Lemon wafers and vanilla with a twist of floral; this is excellent Highland Park! The citrus is really nice to cut the heft of the peat here and the Jasmine floral sort of build into the body.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Naked Highland Park; citrus punch and smoke. That sweetness never quits through the dram, spun candy that's a touch burnt giving that scorched sugar smoke. More muddy, earthy freshness and a touch of wildflower honey mingle with a touch of white pepper heat.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long smoke, drawn out body and charred oak. The brine starts to come out here, more oaky sweets and less of the lemon/floral notes here. Really rich!

    Today I try this Highland Park. Have had the chance to drink some very nice ones, and some less to my taste. Let's see how this tastes.

    Nose begins with sea air, salt, lemon juice, mild smoke, a touch of honey, a hint of pepper.

    Palate has lemon juice, smoke, honey, some salt.

    Finishes with salt, some pepper, oiliness, smoke, honey, and lemon.

  9. wncvirus scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Marine elements with a large dose of freshness. A bit of peach.
    Taste: Unfortunately, quite flat in taste. Without clear strong notes. Some butter, some fruit. Unfortunately, sometimes there is noticeable alcohol.
    Rating: 85 100 Finish: fairly long, slightly warming up, quite spicy. Unfortunately this HP is poor.
