Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1967

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.00 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    This seems to have more pepper 2nd time around and the peat just grows in your mouth until it explodes, very much reminding me of a few Douglas Laing 1972 Brora but there is more sherry here with the Brora being crisper & cleaner but the fact the peat just keeps on growing is why this is similar.

    I am finally settling on 93 points.

    Probably the peatiest and most hard hitting HP I have tried, a real bruiser, excellent stuff.

      Like the DT, similar profile in parts but there is more of this, more substantial if you will?
      The fruit is of the well stewed variety, apple, plum, hints of gooseberry, mixed in with honey comb and a little orange essence.
      Very nice with a few meaty notes coming through after a minute or so
    • Taste

      Heavy mouthfeel and a wave of spicy peat washes over your tongue, much more peat than I was expecting with some nice fruit notes mixed with rich caramel pudding.
      Gets salty and the peat just keeps on growing with an avalanche of crystalised fruits over your tongue, this is a heavyweight HP.
      With a few drops of water
      More fruit & spice at first but the peat comes back witha vengence and leaves you salivating.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, powerful and vibrant with the peat & spice punching your taste buds about until the end.
      Adding a few drops of water lulls you into a false sense of security that the peat has been tamed, don`t be fooled

    I have just tried this H2H with this 1967

    The DT is elegant in comparison to this bruiser, probably the peatiest OB I have tried

    I would put it at around 93-94 points, great stuff, tasting notes later.
    Be warned this is a real bruiser, matching most of the Islay bruisers easily.

    Very powerful and complex, the nose is a bit behind the palate and finish but otherwise fantastic!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Very intense, green fruits, heather, herbs, honey, oak wood, whiffs of smoke, sea breeze, hints of old books - very good
    • Taste
      94 94
      Punchy, oily, very fruity, yellow fruits, quinces, peaches, cantaloupe, spices, pepper, clear notes of oak wood balanced with good sweetness - excellent!
      With water: very interesting, more creamy, some notes of burnt matches, more herbs and even hints of bubble gum
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, burning, little zesty, a bit of grapefruits, still sweet enough, not drying

  5. Feusi did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This is from the first half of the cask, released in November last year (2006). The rest was due to be bottled at Christmas 2006 on its 39th birthday (at least two months of extra maturation time!) and will be released separately, presumably after the first has sold out. TWE
