    Gréât dark sherry, overwhelms a bit the distillate but really to my taste

    Aby birthday tasting 17-09-2016                                                   Sample available on www.whiskysample.nl
    • Nose
      Raisins, some nice sulpher (in balance), salty, orange, syrup and rose hip.
    • Taste
      Plums, apricot, strawberries, forest fruits - cassis and also some pickle.
    • Finish
      Medium drying with tobacco, liquorice and tannins.

      Very interesting whisky with the contrast between the fruity tones in the taste and raw sherry influence in the nose and finish.

    From Whiskyfun:

    Highland Park 1983/1992 (59.7%, G&M Cask, cask #1556)  Colour: full amber. Nose: powerful, pretty much in the same vein as the great cask #1096, only simpler and a little more ‘brutal’ at less than ten years of age. Orange marmalade and heather honey, with once again these faint rubbery notes. But this one really needs water. With water: it got amazingly demonstrative this time. Heavy notes of lovage, beef bouillon and parsley instead of rubber! Good news... Mouth (neat): very good attack, maybe a tad ‘narrow’ when compared to the others but very precise, all on roasted nuts, orange liqueur and these notes of verbena that we already found in cask #1094. Interestingly drinkable at such high strength (whilst its lighter bros were a bit too punchy) but let’s see if it gets more complex with water. With water: little changes this time, and almost no meaty notes on the palate, unlike on the nose. Finish: long, with the spices coming to the front this time (pepper and cloves). Comments: another excellent one. Just a little extra-complexity would have propelled it to the 90-mark or above. SGP:652 – 89 points.

    Highland Park 01/12 / 1983-07 / 1992 8yo GM Cask Strength Collection 70cl 59.7% vol. Cask no.1556 Sestante-PARMA, MAINARDI IMPORT SRL-MILANO This is a highland park of outstanding security! Saying, what is it? This color is! How do you become so dark cotton in this aging year? Nosing, no? GM odor which is forced to gum into the unique nose which is thought of as GM.It seems that it seems not to be so-called "strange cotton skirt sherry" though Attach, but it is deeply deep and deeply deep sherry which can not go deeply deeply and drank quite. However, the more it goes, the better it seeps like the salt that seeps out from fried manju! In Finish, Hakata Bra Bura, power that has too much persuasive power to sprinkle plenty of salt, eating at the same time (善 ん Za) and Chuzenji Manju! I can not afford Orkney salt flavor and Japanese sweet doubles that I can not afford to lose. After all, this series is the bartering rate of steel plates. https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyhars4invzfm
