  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful, well-matured Highland Park. I really like the oily, syrupy profile along with the great balance of fruit and oak flavor. Has a very high recognition value.

      fruity and sweet; yellow ripe fruits with tropical influences (pineapple, banana, yellow apple); Herbal notes; some honey; delicate spicy oak
    • Taste
      92 92
      soft; very oily and sweet; syrupy; great mouth-filling juicy fruitiness of yellow ripe fruit; apricots; with nice herbal notes; beautifully integrated, tingling, slightly tart oak flavor
    • Finish

  7. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Ohhhh
    • Nose
      Tropical fruits, soft olive oil, faintly medicinal with honey and papaya.
    • Taste
      A mixture of juicy fruits, slightly drying flinty notes, faint smoke and a little earthy.
    • Finish
      Slightly salty, coastal and fruity. One to sit back and savour.
