  2. MaltNerd scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This is the correct whisky, which unfortunately seems to be quite one-dimensional. The lean aroma is a bit worrying, after 16 years in refill butt a little more is expected.
    I wasn’t set to meet the sticky sherry monster here, but the spicy nature of this edition with alcoholic moments is a bit disappointing.
    • Nose
      Earthy and spicy nutmeg. Sponge cake in alcohol and tea notes. In the background, characteristic for Highland Park citruses. Some hard candies. An oldschool profile, but quite one dimensional.
    • Taste
      sweetness with smoke from the campfire, pepper, citrus, traces of leather and tea, caramel. Salty.
    • Finish
      warming with spices, citric acid, alcohol, oak bitterness and salt at the end. Medium long.
