Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1984 DL

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.14 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Saulecker, top for Highland Park (I'm not the super fan), and very surprising flavor combo for Refill Hogshead (I'm a fan and had many delicious single casks, but this one is really good). I do not say anything about the price - the train left anyway and I have no idea what it cost during his lifetime.
    • Nose
      Pure: sawdust, very dry wood that has become hot when sawing, freshly printed book, white pepper, a touch of thinner
      +10 min, drops of water: candy, cane sugar, then orange-fruity (difficult to define, between canned peach, over-ripe nectarine and orange marmalade, secondarily I also had banana and pineapple haribo), then sharpness, ginger, cloves, some anise, then It's going to be dry again, sawdust ... Hand on the glass, shake and the fun starts over
    • Taste
      again canned peach and orange marmalade, here's still a mango kick to it, then it goes on the tongue only in the direction of honey and milk chocolate, then dark chocolate, maple syrup to coffee, feels fat and viscous, with neat black pepper
    • Finish
      long and hot, first cocoa / coffee, the exotic mango note sounds again, then dust-dry, sawdust, lots of white pepper
