Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 10-year-old

57 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.01 points

  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Subtle nose, watery taste, simple finish. ok-ish, but not interesting enough for an entire bottle, 35 cl will do just fine.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Light, slihtly smoky and peppery, heather honey, green apples, floral, a little citrus.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Thin and watery, sweet honey, barley sugars and vague fruitiness. Eventually some white pepper.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Short, honied sweetness, mild liquorice and dry ashy wood notes.

  2. Usl1978 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    A mediocre malt!
    Nose is still okay, the rest is too thin and light!
    Unfortunately, Highland Park whiskys are not my taste either way.

  3. LordIslay scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Only the nose was promising, the rest was below average.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Pleasantly fruity and fresh. Sherry finish is unique.
    • Taste
      77 77
      Watery and tasteless. Hardly actually there.
    • Finish
      79 79
      The finish is again not as unpleasant and tasteless as the whisky in the mouth suggests.
      But far from a good malt.

  4. Syleo scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    A neat, classic standard. Overall, however, a bit too thin for me with its 40%.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Golden and with a light copper tone, fruit sweetness and oak spice mix in the balanced nose. Student food and dried fruit from plums and raisins to melon, orange and lime, the typical heather and heather honey, a few pine needles, warm caramel and dark, sweet smoke.
    • Taste
      78 78
      With a slight woody bitterness, the alcohol drifts across the palate, pleasantly warms and brings back the heather flavor. Overall, unfortunately, a bit thin.
    • Finish
      73 73
      Short and with a slightly floral-alcoholic note, the heather changes into the aftertaste of herbal candies.

  5. spigray scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Had it at 85 the last time I tasted it. but this time it convinced me! so two points up!
    • Nose
      87 87
      light malt, acacia honey, faint smoke, green bananas and oranges. sunflower oil. almost has a coastal touch which I really like a lot.
      it´s fresh and clean, spirit driven. I like it better than the 12er at least on the nose. not very complex but very pleasant.
    • Taste
      88 88
      round and fresh, again this pleasant light malty side with a few almonds. very light peat and some honey. slightly salted caramel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      some say it´s short in the finish but I tend to say medium.
      looking forward to the next sip.

    • Nose
      Sweet, honey, vanilla, orange, some salty. Something sherry influences, also hint of wood fire
    • Taste
      Smoky undertones, honey, somewhat thinner, spicy, light pepper. Chocolate
    • Finish
      Smoky, light pepper, dry, slightly bitter. Also honey sweet, medium aftertaste
