Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1967 DT
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.61 points
- Tasting this again I am getting more peat and a salted caramel note, even better this time my overall score has increased to 92 points.
- An excellent whisky, just as good as the 1967 43 year cask 6282 John Scotts.
Light, a little floral, some toffee notes but not heavy toffee, a little butterscotch , caramel, some white fruits coming through after a minute or so but then a few chemical notes emerge.
I detected no peat on the nose but it is here in abundance, mixing nicely with the sherry and some stewed fruit, it is quite drying in the aftertaste.
There is a little treacle in the mix and then a blast of ginger spice, and finally a little classic old HP orange comes in, very good balance on show here.
Good medium length, sweetness diminshing and as on the note a slight metallic chemical note emerges but , it does not detract or lower the score for me,
- I have just tried this H2H with this 1967 OB
The DT is elegant in comparison to the OB bruiser which is probably the peatiest OB I have tried
I would put it at around 91-92points,nice stuff just a very slight metallic aspect on the nose and finish which dropped it a few points otherwise this would have been 93-94 points.
This was restrained for 50% abv, one of those old elegant whiskies I really love.
