  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Highland park before all the marketing nonsense of the past decade or so. The whisky that put me back on track of peat smoke over 10 years ago.

  6. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    No significant difference to the current version. Both are about equal. Maybe the current version has a bit more smoke and the old slightly more tangerine in the nose. For me a delicious standard. (Due to the exponentially higher price of the older version this gets in the whole here one point less than the current bottling.)
    • Nose
      Honey, heather, tangerine, orange, fine smoke, clover flowers
    • Taste
      clear, slightly watery, silky, orange, oats, caramel, clover sweetness, smoke, more and more dark chocolate, lots of ginger, slightly nutty
    • Finish
      a lot of dark chocolate, creamy, ginger, some orange, caramel, smoke
