Whisky Reviews for Highland Park Einar
46 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.04 points
Herbal, grassy, some gentle smoke, a little spice tickles at the nostrils, an almost flowery sweetness with time.
With water - sweeter malty tone, almost sugary
Soft smoke initially before developing and filling the mouth a little more, gently charred oak, a little weak and watery.
With water - oak is fuller.
Short/medium, smoke lingers but gets woody like chewed pencil, walnut aftertaste.
With water - medium/long, a shadow of initial finish
- Wins on the nose but loses it all again in the mouth.
Notes from a 2 year open bottle below halfpoint. Seems to have opened up and settled down somewhat over that time. Would probably score a few points lower freshly opened, but this is strictly based on memory as I have no second bottle of this.
First off spices, namely pepper, white pepper, then some grass, honey and caramel. Despite being only 40% the alcohol does nip a bit here. Then comes the young oak with a bit of vanilla and even some spearmint. Not too far from HP10 here.
Mildy grassy, honeyed cereal, bit of oak and vanilla, peppery, spicy and alcoholic nip - again only @ 40% - cardboard. Pretty one dimensional and not up to par with the nose.
Pepper, chili, cardboard - medium long on the "afterburner".
yeast, alcohol, pepper, honey
bourbon, vanilla, honey, wood
more filled bourbon taste on the finish with vanillas
- Again a mediocre bottle for the travel retail. Probably only interesting for the ignorant travelers who expect to bring a standardized brand for a nice price. It doesn't make me hot or cold.
Caramel, vanilla, honey and some oak. You smell the youth.
Slightly smoky, vanilla and some citrus fruits. I also taste some oak and herbs.
Medium long, the smokiness remains. Sweetness of vanilla and honey. In the background some oak and herbs.
- An average malt; the second from the Warrior series;
Liter bottle; with can;
[Color] bright amber;
weak aromas: fruit, wood, oak, vanilla, sweetness, hardly any smoke;
soft, mild, fruity, vanilla, no smoke, wood, spice, metallic youth, one-dimensional;
medium long, dry, spicy, slightly bitter;
- Fairly young, malty, fruity, some vanilla, with a nice hint of smoke on the finish. Nothing complex, but very tasty.
