  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    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.

  4. Gilles_V scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Bottle opened for 10 years. The drink has kept all its freshness. A mouth which holds well and which manages to make people forget the low degree (40%). A perfectly decent whisky.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fresh, salty, salted caramel, hint of vanilla. Cereals.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Fairly structured, especially for a 40%
    • Finish
      87 87
      Mainly cereals but also with all the flavors perceived on the nose.

  5. DanishDistilled scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Reminds me a a fair bit of the HP 12 Viking Scars. Would have to taste that one to confirm if they are really similar. All around a nice whisky, but on the brink of me classifying it as a 'beginner whisky'.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Light peat and fresh lime/lemon and light fruits.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Nice, round. Oak, light peat, a bit of fresh fruits. A bit too light/shallow in the mouth. The taste itself is really nice, but it lacks depth.
    • Finish
      77 77
      Nice peatiness and surprisingly little oak taste. Lasts about 20-30s, and isn't very complex.
