- 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.
Vanilla, lemon, peach, melon, pear, honey, sea salt and touch of peat.
Sea salt, slightly smoky, turfo, lemon, vanilla, honey, pear, baked apple, cinnamon, oak and peach.
Long, honey, oak, turf, lemon, baked apples and hints of tropical fruit.
- 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.)
Honey, heather, tangerine, orange, fine smoke, clover flowers
clear, slightly watery, silky, orange, oats, caramel, clover sweetness, smoke, more and more dark chocolate, lots of ginger, slightly nutty
a lot of dark chocolate, creamy, ginger, some orange, caramel, smoke
