    [March, 2020] A blind review of a sample...

    ...and I never ever guessed a Highland Park. Actually, there is not much malt left beside the heavy-sour sherry notes and significant bitter-herbal wooden flavours from the oak. So it is hard to guess any distillery at all (I quoted a Mortlach or Aberlour - not because of any flavours profile but because these distilleries are known for such sherskies/woodskies).

    This rather is a high-proof sherry wine matured in oak cask than a whisky - so why the hell should I pay the extraordinary premium price for a Highland Park single cask release (I am not a collector)? Do not get me wrong, this is easy and enjoyable to drink (hence my score) but I would not spend more than 50 Eurobucks on such a spirits drink - any price above that is a brand premium I am not willing to pay as a drinker (but it is absolutely okay if you see this differently)...
