Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 21-year-old
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.96 points
- Aroma, old dry wood, old furniture, mixed with vanilla and light Orcni peat, dry herbs, austere and very cool! The taste is bright and powerfully the same, there is a lot of dry old wood, not redone, just the same taste; sweetish iodine, wood dust, peat, association with an old Soviet building(or any old room); here also tannins velvety knit the palate, very cool!
- Appearance: straw yellow
Mouthfeel: Very mild, typical of a Highland Park, slightly dry not too weak
Nose: Sweet, fruity, typical Highland Park gorse, light sherry notes and a hint of vanilla
Taste: Slightly peaty, tobacco, a little oak and just a little sweetness, dark chocolate. That's it.
Finish: dark chocolate, still the smoke and tobacco, the slight sweetness remains, then slightly fruity in the interplay with dark chocolate
Harmony: components fit together perfectly
Conclusion: For the money and unfortunately a bad PLV compared to the old 21er. Still a good whisky, unfortunately a bit thin.
- The HP 21 is very balanced and has only a hint of smoke. Very tasty and harmonious, no bad notes or bitterness, a lot of fruit (apple, apricot?), Some raisins, light sweetness, even tolerates some water. Alcohol noticeable, but pleasant. Long finish.
