Taste: The Highlander shows its full 55.1% vol. On the tongue and comes with a lot of power. The berry fruit now fades into the background and dark chocolate is the first thing I turn off. There are also citrus aromas of an orange, marzipan, coffee, a little leather and a distinct spice of oak. I'm betting on European make. Nevertheless, no aroma takes over the scepter. The finesse of the aromas forms a nice contrast to the powerful appearance.
Finish: Medium with a little orange, unsweetened espresso and a hint of oak.
Conclusion: For just under 130 euros currently a no-brainer, as the saying goes. I am thrilled and glad that I kept a little more than the usual 5cl from the division. You definitely don't have an old school sherry malt here. Instead, however, a clear, modern malt that shows that there are also barrels that are not only bursting with aromas but also leave room for the malt. Very nice!
