Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 30-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.04 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    This is the epitome of sherry HP. It tastes quite produced or managed, in that it's a sleek thing with nary a flaw nor an odd note that would add some personality, but it doesn't bother me, since the end product is just so fine.
    The nose is sometimes almost like an old sherried Glenfarclas with its gingerbread notes, but then the HP peat reminds you this is a bit more robust affair than what they do over there.
    I would not see myself paying the price of a full bottle these days, but buying and drinking one of these minis is something I recommend for any whisky fan.

    Tasted with HP 12yo 2018 (83 pts.), HP 25yo bot. 1995 (91), and HP 25yo bot. 2006 (92).

  4. Matt80 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Similar to the 25 year old but this is less robust.
    • Nose
      Restrained oak, gentle sherry, dried fruit, mint, plums, quite sweet, mint chocolate, spicy.

      With water - quite herbal, star anise, dry sherry.
    • Taste
      Spicy, oak, quite woody, peppery, slight sherried sweetness, a little salt, a little bitter tannins.

      With water - ginger, some white wine.
    • Finish
      Long, peppery, sherry, tannins, salt.

      With water - spicy, wood is the lasting note.
