    I love this drop, a big THANK YOU to Michel Reick and his palate. I'm very happy to have got hold of another bottle for my 'best of collection'!

    Addendum after 4 months:
    Thick, heavy, oily, full of dark fruits such as plums, dates soaked in used oil pour into the glass - it is also a great taste experience when diluted with a little water to around 44-46%. Worth every penny and too good for my living bottle.
    • Nose
      92 92
      A very full aroma penetrates the nose, full of sherry, nuts, toffee, vanilla. The gentle smoke is very mild and pleasant, followed by tobacco and leather

      Less than a week after the opening and first tasting, I have a second dram. The cherry is even more concise, but what absolutely excites me is the freshly opened cigar box flowing towards me. Dark chocolate is added to this, what more do you need for a successful gentlemen's evening? Delicious, I'll raise my nose rating to 92.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Mild wood, leather, cherry, followed by toffee notes and chocolate. Delicious! After a few months and with a filling level of 50%, the vanilla becomes more concise and a hint of smoked paprika is added

      You don't notice the 57.6% at all, it is mouth-filling but not aggressive. It spreads thick and oily and stays in the mouth and throat for a long time

      The best Highland Park I've ever had in my glass, thank you very much for this bottling! In contrast, the 25y was a real disappointment
