    Highland Park
    25 yo 1981 (54.9%, OB, Binny's, USA, cask #7380, 2nd fill butt) Colour: mahogany/brown.
    Nose: heavy sherry, heavy chocolate, heavy coffee and heavy raisins. Certainly
    not subtle, you got it, but balance is still achieved, although we can’t get any
    distillery character here. Gets more winey with time, with big notes of
    blackcurrant leaves and peonies as well as a little rubber and raspberry jam.
    We’re curious about the palate here, we feel it’ll be hit or miss... Mouth:
    thick, heavily sherried as expected, almost monstrous at the attack. Almost like
    wine that you’d have reduced on fire for a long, long time. Heavy mint in the
    background, crystallised oranges, bitter caramel, grape skins, robusto coffee...
    Well, if you’re in the US and are looking for a true sherry monster (whatever
    the original distillery), you’ll probably like this. If it’s more Highland Park
    you’re into, well..... Finish: long but so heavily concentrated that this length
    is a bit disturbing, which takes the biscuit! Monstrous indeed. SGP:675
    - 78 points.
