Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1978 AqV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.33 points

  1. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A dignified old gentleman who can still pack a punch.
    • Nose
      On the nose its aromas of dry grass and vegetation. Think straw bales burning on a farmers field. Its a delicate smoke aroma which reminds me of autumn walks through the countryside.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly sweet with almost caster sugar like notes. It develops a lemony edge to it with a kind of lemon slice with sugar ontop.
    • Finish
      Slightly drying, soft smokiness and hints of white oak. There's a layer of oak which continues on making it a long but soft finish.
