hs305 gave this whisky 87 points

[January, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 212 that I bought for 63 Euro in November, 2012.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

Color
Auburn
Nose

Poivre, fumée , minéral, vanille. Je ne trouve pas le sherry très appuyé. Une légère tourbe aromatique transparaît au fil du temps.

Taste

Un peu sec, astringent. Pas trop un profil qui me va.

Finish

Une amertume un peu trop marquée .

Comments

Un peu passê à côté de ce hp loin du profil auquel je m'attendais.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Des figues sèches, un peu d'eucalyptus dans le fond, du thé noir, et une odeur de fumée sèche de tabac brûlé.

Taste

Aqueuse de prime abord, effacée. Manque de punch et de goût. Quelques notes fumées de tabac, du caramel.

Finish

Sécheresse fumée, quelques épices douces, légère amertume de thé sec.

Comments

Un starter réduit à considérer, mais ça ne va pas plus loin.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Red berries, cherries, brambles, caramel, blueberries, eucalyptus, mocha, vanilla and smoke. A little dough, ash and broth.

Taste

Cherries, strawberries, caramel, peat ash, vanilla, marshmallows, raspberries, cappuccino and pepper.

Finish

Blueberries, caramel, marshmallows, vanilla, mocha, pepper and ash.

Comments

Compared to cask 15135, this one is much more gentle with way less sherry impact and much more room for the Highland Park signature.
Compared to cask 15124, this one has more red fruit and a longer finish but far less creaminess.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Starts with a fragrance of sherry and healthy fresh cut grass. Then lies on a soft bed of smoke, hiding peat underneath, making the whole experience more mineral than fruity. Ends with some gingerbread impressions.

Taste

The gingerbread takes more power, reveals traits of dark chocolate and the sweet, strong sherry comes in force. Tones of brown leather, smoke by the chimney. The chocolate ends up more milky and less passionate as the palate eventually rests on a more creamy note.

Finish

A long, delicious finish. The milky chocolate seems to stay forever and the heather comes back one last time in a more automnal fashion than on the nose. Warms you up a whole night.

Comments

Definitely a great surprise. Was recommended to me at Julhès in Paris for 77 eur. I don't regret this one single second and rejoice on the many good evenings I'll spend with it!
