Nose: Toffee, honey, light smoke, mixed citrus, vanilla, sandalwood, allspice and hints of pepper.
Palate: Gentle peat, the trademark Highland Park “heather honey”, vanilla, lemon zest, banana, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and slighly smoky.
Overall: An outstanding and very typical Highland Park, the balance of flavours is just perfect. Too bad it was not bottled at cask strength.
