Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 2009

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.43 points

  1. whiskyleaksulm scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty and intense Sherry Highland Park, the whisky tolerates a lot of water and, contrary to expectations, is always better! Nice thing!

    Undoubtedly, for 10 years, the Highland Park shows good maturation: the alcohol is well integrated, the nose has the typical Highland Park character, the aromas are intense. But where is the complexity? I would even say it's ridiculously straightforward. Certainly not a bad whisky, but I expect more from a single cask.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The typical Highland Park notes are immediately in the nose: heather, slightly foral and a lot of honey. There is also a light green note of pine and resin. Some cold ash can be seen in the background. Alcohol is well integrated.

      Uiii, with its 66.5% it has a lot of steam: Undiluted, intense, spicy forest honey and very sweet. First add a little water: it stays intensely sweet, then it becomes sweet and, towards the end, forest honey sweet. No seriously, I was expecting more complexity. After several sips, the light pine and resin notes are added. That's it.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length. Well, the sweetness and some tannins stay on the tongue here too.
