Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 21-year-old

  1. maxgrey993 scored this whisky 92 points Member Senior

    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.
