  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant highland park nose
    Tasty in the mouth with typical HP notes
    Finish Medium long and harmonious

    Gladly again

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I zwiegespalten ... on the one hand very delicious composed, on the other hand here a bit thin, there a bit rass (compromises?) ... over 60 ¬ I would not want to invest there by far.
    • Nose
      fruity-sweet, orange, canned peach, a little caramel, pleasant and round, no acid, and I do not like smoke
    • Taste
      orange and peach again in the beginning, go a little towards tic tac or chewing gum, with milk chocolate, and after a few seconds in the mouth, it is overlaid by a slightly rough, bitter-sharp wood note
    • Finish
      medium to long, the wood remains primary, so between pepper, bitter and a bit rasplig, as well as a grapefruit flashes through

  8. Thermidor scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    I liked the profile more than that of the current 12yo, but reducing it to 40% murdered this whisky. I don't like it when I can taste the water...
