Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1973

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.50 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Great balance on this one, almost perfect for me.
    • Nose
      What I call a classic HP nose, refined, almost perfume like on sweet cakes, cinnamon, mulled wine, peat, smoke, juicy plump raisins, possibly heather, Turkish delight, sweet meal biscuit.

      After a few minutes in the glass it gets fruity, reminds me of the dark flavoured fruit gums.
    • Taste
      Rich, creamy, chocolate, coffee, a few full bodied red wine notes, fudge, brown bread and then it starts to get sweeter and almost bourbon like which reminded me of the Pappy Van Winkle 20 & 23 year but much better but there are similarities for sure.

      Some spices kick in on the tongue with a little bitter orange creeping in
    • Finish
      Not the longest but it is refined, almost like a mild Christmas cake mixed with mulled wine and the spicy angle seems to be growing at the finish.

    I could nose this sort of whisky for hours, I have had plenty of old HP, this is one of the best of the palate was a little thicker it would get even higher but it is really well balanced.
