    Friendly and attractive nose, considering the ABV.
    The oak taste is quite present and overwhelms a lot of the fine notes Fabian mentioned. Too much oak for my liking.
    (tasted early in the afternoon)

  12. Fabian scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Another beautiful and delicious Single Cask release from Highland Park.
    Clearly the sherry influence.
    Raisin, red fruit, leather, tobacco, sweet, honey, vanilla.
