    This is so close to be the perfect whisky IMHO. Astonishing! Tasted blindly.
    • Nose
      Perfect balance of sherry, red fruits, rosemary, orange peel, light peat, a bit earthy, chocolate, caramel, figs, prunes, raisins. Fantastic nose
    • Taste
      Sherry, raisins, peaches, liquorice.
    • Finish
      Salty, peat, chocolate, orange peel, liquorice.

    From Whiskyfun,

    Highland Park 28 yo 1977 'Ping No. 2' (52.3%, OB OB for Juuls Vinhandel, cask #7959, 240 bottles) Five stars Colour: dark amber with red hues. Nose: some sherry this time, and this is just as unusual as the 1986, with these wee whiffs of fur coat, Chanel No.5 and reseda at first nosing, and then these touches of old Burgundy wine, dried mushrooms, peonies, amaretto, cherries and then the expected dried fruits from the sherry cask. Dates, figs, sandalwood, almond oil… It’s very complex but you have to work on it a bit. Cigars. With water: I like this a lot, manzanilla-style with the Chanel flying above it again. Beautiful complexity. Mouth (neat): starts earthy/dusty, with touches of cardboard, tapioca, heavy cloves and gin from the oak. Some heavy liquorice too and then more classic dried fruits, rather dark and not too sweet. Smyrna raisins, blood oranges. High sherry content. With water: once again it’s the earthiness that comes out, together with something ‘pleasantly chemical’. Vitamin C tablets? Finish: long, more on raisins and other dried fruits. Slightly fizzy. Comments: this one likes water but careful with your pipette or your teaspoon or the fizzy side could become ‘too much’. SGP:562 - 90 points.
