    For me, this Highland Park is very varied and overall a good single malt that I like to bring out every now and then.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Fruity esters that remind me of apricots, apricots and peaches. Hidden vanilla and a hint of marzipan - at least that's how it seems to me. The longer I try to recognize its aromas, the more I think of freshly baked plum cake. Very promising!
    • Taste
      89 89
      Strong start with pronounced flavors of plums and raisins - the influence of the sherry cannot be denied and makes it very pleasant to me. Little by little, light smoke and a little salt occupy my taste buds. Very pleasant and warming.
    • Finish

      My impression is that the fruity notes say goodbye and give way to an increasingly sharp spiciness. I can also feel tannins that remind me of old wood and a salty oiliness that resonates with me even longer. Not quite as convincing anymore, but still good.
