  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    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.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    An excellent whisky, just as good as the 1967 43 year cask 6282 John Scotts.
    • Nose
      91 91
      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.
    • Taste
      92 92
      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.
    • Finish
      91 91
      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

    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/25361/highland-park-1967#note-container

    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.
