2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.29 points

  1. corbuso scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A very intense, peaty, rich and well balanced complemented by sweet and round sherry, A very good value whisky.

    I thought I did not like Highland Park too much. I was wrong. I need a bottle of this thing that definitely confirms to me the status of "little slaughter" that many give it.
    • Nose
      Drier than the 18yo "black menhirs", it is closer to the 12yo round bottle, but much more complex and punchy. Pretty hard to pin down too. The influence of sherry is always perceptible and blends with heather and especially with peat (pungent smoke). A strand "coastal" too, and a medicinal touch that will tickle your nostrils when you inhale a good shot. Aeration reveals notes of walnut kernels.
    • Taste
      At once sweet and powerful. A beautiful peat that combines with sweet citrus (candied oranges). Salt and iodine. The descriptors seem to be those of an Islay, but the profile is nevertheless very different, rounder and creamy perhaps.
    • Finish
      Long, on iodine, licorice and sherry. Fugitive and delicious notes of milk chocolate and exotic fruits.
