  1. RobbievdB scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A butt naked Highland Park. Indeed, this is all about the distillate and very refreshing whisky between all the first fill violence. It’s straightforward in on vanilla, minerals, wet stones, coastal aromas and a nice layer of gentle peat. Not overly complex but very solid at what it promises and delivers.

    Highland Park - re-racked prior to vatting.

    In the words of PC Plod - nothing to taste here - move on.

    I liked it but wouldn't buy a bottle of it. There's not much to discover but a bit of sweetness, sea salt and maritime notes combined with fruity notes. Doesn't stay very long and fades to nothing. A nice dram to drink after an eventfull day just to enjoy without thinking too much about it.

    Perfect value for money if you like the mineral side of Highland Park. This is all about spirit and no cask influence, Serge would love it ;)
