    Definitely good whisky, but for me not worth the price, maybe if you want impress guests which usually doesn't drink whisky since this one is pretty rounded and beginner friendly. It has significant benefit from the air exposure.

  3. Drum scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very nice, I like it a lot. The 43% suits this Highland Park well, it's not thin on the tongue - on the contrary, I'm amazed at how full the whisky was in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Light and "fresh" smoke, somehow homey like a cold hearth fire, fruits I can't name, sherry and wine aromas, roasted aromas and heather. Overall mild and sweet.
    • Taste
      Mild and at the same time full in volume. The smoke is slightly stronger on the nose and sweet herbs. I also find sherry and bitter dark forest honey.
    • Finish
      Smoke, warm and smooth with an oily mouthfeel. Essential sweet herbal candies, quince and oak. It's getting oily in the mouth.
