Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1970

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.73 points

  1. Harvey scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This is one of those "nosing" whiskies,you know?  You could nose this one for hours. Tastes good, but not over the top life changing experience and finish too short for me.

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Specifically chosen by Whisky Maker Max McFarlane, the whisky has been drawn from seven casks laid down with new make spirit in 1970. All were refill casks comprising both butts and hogsheads and yielded just 1,800 bottles at a natural strength of 48% abv.

    Producer's notes:Appearance:Rich, burnished gold still with great clarity and brightness.Nose:Unreduced, the 1970 Vintage has Highland Park’s signature honey sweetness. A burst of caramelised pineapple is followed by a citrus kick. Water reveals sweet oak notes, followed by nasturtium petals and woodsmoke.Palate:At natural strength, an intriguing mix of vanilla and coriander seeds. With water, hidden toasted peat smoke and cedar wood emerge.Finish:Exceptionally long, sweet and spicy.

    "Another entry in Highland Park`s impressive Orcadian Vintages range - a

    whisky made from a marriage of casks distilled in 1970. This continues

    the series incredible presentation, with a heavy dark glass bottle and

    hand detailed wooden box."
