    Highland Park 18yo 1976/1994 (59%, Cadenhead's for Oddbins, cask #4646) Colour: full gold. Nose: unexpectedly ‘nosable’ despite the almost 60%, all on roasted nuts and various kinds of honeys, including, of course, heather. And then we have coal smoke, and then whiffs of resin and eucalyptus, a little ginger (just a little), a little nutmeg... All that is very complex and not masked by the alcohol at all. Also bitter oranges and quinine tonic wine, touches of cinnamon, fresh parsley, even a little oregano... ‘Wow!’ With water: it got much earthier, now totally on fresh mushrooms, wet clay, even ‘good’ mud... And morels, truffles, old Vin Jaune, old pu-erh tea... F*ck, this is great! Err, sorry... Mouth (neat): big, fat, oily whisky! Pepper, mint, apples and much more peat now. Then we have lemon marmalade with a little salt, then something like dried boletus (yeah, I know – or is it tobacco?), tar (a lot), salted liquorice... It’s really concentrated – and high-class whisky, but let’s se how it’ll behave with a few drops of water. With water: holy featherless crow! Finish: even more of everything, and tankerloads of gentian. Which is great news according to us. Comments: a fabulous very earthy Highland Park. SGP:474 - 94 points
