Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 2001 GM

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.09 points

  1. Trops scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Sweet aroma of pastries, vanilla, cinnamon, confectionery essence, coconut. And the taste is completely different: powerful, fresh, ash and citruses, noticeable smoke and wood. The finish is steady, apple seed, bitter almonds. The dissonance between aroma and taste. But still very good.

    C: I’d never have guessed this as Highland Park, and would have guessed an abv of ‘only’ 46%. With water, bingo! The reveal and mouthfeel move in unison. It’s a good’un. Solid.

  3. Kaleva scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice Highland Park, brutal and rough but superbly balanced. Quite earthy and mineral but this minerality is very well integrated. Tasty but definitely not for everyone.
    • Nose
      Quite closed, a bit sweet and fresh, earthy, light smoke, orange zest, some spices (vanilla and cinnamon), subtle oaky notes, caramel, buckwheat honey. Water opens up wonderful fruity aromas: pears, apples, some tropical fruits (pineapple), lemon juice
    • Taste
      Rather punchy neat, quite mineral and spicy, slightly sweet. Diluted: some oatmeal, syrup, grinded peppers and ginger with a touch of habanero, soft malty oak, light smoke on the background
    • Finish
      Medium-long, peppery, slightly sweet and nutty (walnuts), gently oaky and smoky at the end with a touch of tangerine and sweet malt

  5. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Clean, vanilla, icing sugar, not explosive but robust.
    • Taste
      Thick and complex, melons, icing sugar, a touch of rotten vegetables, smoky, intense, salty and dirty, very good.
    • Finish
      Long, wood tannins, smokes, diesel, pine needles.
