    A bit on the sweet side, but everything that I love about Highland Park is present!

  4. Issie did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Very musty, dirty, old cellar, leather, dried fruit, nuts, some wild berry jam and there is definitely sulphur
    • Taste
      Dried fruits, nuts, a bit of chocolate, a bit of lemon, a bit of ash out the back

    Driven too brimstone for me. With some drops of water this is strengthened. Did something go wrong during the process?

    A nice single cask for an attractive price, with a good age and a beautiful mahogany color. What could go wrong? The smell from the glass is quite spicy. Van Wees has a preference for a small dirty edge to the whisky and you will also find that in this glass. Against sulfur, but just not. Complex enough to entertain you. A spicy character on the tongue, but certainly a sweet edge from the Refill Butt. Mature and powerful mouthfeel. The finish is pleasantly warming and chocolate bitter. It is an impressive quality in itself, but if you know the price it is an extra point.
