Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1988 Ben

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.44 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very lovely, but
    unfortunately as good as untraceable Highland Park. Big thanks to The Green Man
    for the sample!
    • Nose
      Sherry and peat –
      even Orkney peat – remains a difficult, but often great combination. The nose
      of this HP is dominated by dark fruit (plums, raisins and dades), dark
      chocolate, nut oil and chewing tobacco, upholstered with candied orange rind
      and woodsmoke. Nicely spiced as well. Aniseed, saffron and a hint of cinnamon.
      I get the feeling I am nosing this in a cow sty. Nice, nice, nice!
    • Taste
      With this ABV, it
      comes as no surprise that it gives you a kick in the teeth. The saliva glands
      go into overdrive to compensate. That gives you wonderful notes of chocolate,
      nuts, blood oranges, cinnamon, liquorice and even some roast beef. But above
      all chewing tobacco. A salty and peaty edge reminds you that this is in fact
      Highland Park.
    • Finish
      The finish is long
      enough to make you dream about your next trip to Scotland and how you then must
      truly visit this distillery.
