Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 21-year-old

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.18 points

  1. MGHOW did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    I am doubtful of these high reviews. Highland Park's quality has been slipping for years and years. I doubt this overpriced 21 year old has any quality until I see proper tasting notes.

  2. djmaxliving scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    21 Years old whisky can be either, stunning or underwhelming and in this case, it's a latter of the two.

    I don't detect much sherry influence at all here, which they seem to mention on the box but it's definitely lacking? Luckily I don't factor in the price, otherwise, the score would be even worse.

      Soft highland park peat, bourbon sweetness, floral, light, spring flowers, ash dust, lemon dip and some spice.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sherbet, cream, nutmeg, floral, light honey and ginger.
    • Finish
      77 77
      Strong bitter wood, completely ruins the finish.

    Absolutely phenomenal whisky! In my opinion this goes head to head with the new 25 August 2019 Release at half the price.
