Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 12.5-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.75 points

    Very, very special HP. In the smell and even more in taste, it reminds me terribly of FEW Bourbon, just a little more subdued in its expression. And in truth, I'm not quite sure if it's rather good or rather bad.

    Anyway, there are distinctive herbs and root vegetables in taste. Accompanied by a somewhat astringent piquancy that continues even in the end. In addition to herbs, the fragrance also shows a hint of worchester sauce combined with salty caramel.

    (Rated based on sample.)

    SWAP ANOTHER VSC BOTTLE !
    If any other owner of a HP VSC (Viking Soul Cask) is ready to swap a bottle for this one, pls get in touch.
    Thanks, pH

    Ours is a nice balance of smoke, sherry and oak, all in right balance!
    «Òran Na Boii» is a lose translation into Scottish Gaelic of "Bohemian Rhapsody", Bohemia being the name for the territory covering central Czech republic.
