Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 2008

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.25 points

  1. robain scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Balanced whisky, nose taste and finish follows the same line. Not to complex and not very impressive to get a higher score.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sherry notes, oak and vanilla. Very mature feel to the nose despite its young age.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Oak, vanilla and sweetness. Nothing special but not to bad.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Oak, some sherry and vanilla here also.

  2. KyleRamsay scored this whisky 86 points Member Junior

    After having drunk nearly half of the bottle im pretty sure in my assessment this time around. This is my final score and won't be changing it.

    I previously rated this whisky 90 points but have since realized that my judgement was flawed and that while this whisky is definitely good, it doesn't deserve such a high rating, you could say I was naive in my original review.

    That said, this is a really nice whisky which is one that those who like sherried and wood driven whiskies will enjoy.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Slight alcoholic burn (duh it's 66%), sherry, woody, vanilla, and the faintest hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Prominent sherry influence, spicy, some woody notes.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Wood, sherry, lightly drying.

      Pretty good considering its age, but not worth the price tag even at cask strength imo. Doesn't offer much complexity and is rather straightforward but the flavors are good.

      86 points from me which is a whisky that's is better than average.
