  1. stollimaus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Highland Park Ambassador's Choice was chosen by Danish brand ambassador Martin Markvardsen. Originally released in Sweden, it has now been given a more general release. Aged for 10 years, in a combination of American oak bourbon barrels (70%) and oloroso sherry casks (30%), this is sweet with the smoke that the distillery is known for.

    In my personal opinion, this bottle is one of the best VFM you can find.
    Very balance, and quality.
    Fantastic nose: honey, citrus, vanilla, gentle typical H.P smoke.
    Taste: same vanilla, honey, citrus, wood, very round.
    Finish: medium, still citrus till the end.

    Does this 10 year old improves because the higher ABV% instead of the normal  choice of 40/ 43%? I liked the idea, but the outcome is not so good.
    • Nose
      A little punchent smell full of citrus, what changes into a sweet and malty core. So squeezed lemon first, drop of oranges and after that some fresh baked bread, a little sugary pastry on the side and you've got yourself a sunday breakfast.
    • Taste
      Bitter grapefruit with some anise. Unripe fruit, green apples. Cookie dough, still raw. Very young really. Very spicy, not not too pleasant. Dare I say peat? Not much actually.
    • Finish
      Fades away quickly into a sour and bitter fruit with unbaked dough.

  7. Ivynor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Good product, but a little young.
    • Nose
      Toffee, original werthers, honey, with also floral notes, including some heather. Rather pleasant and engaging. Light green apple freshness
    • Taste
      Beginning of disappointing mouth, on alcohol, bitterness, vegetal. Then we find, with a certain smoothness, the notes of the nose (toffee, caramel) and a little dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Smoke of coal, toffee, heather

  10. sicco scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Lovely whisky. Nicely balanced, fresh, spices, somewhat fruity, but not too fruity. I like this best on a warm summernight. But also nice on a winternight to remember the summernight :) Lovely taste. I like it better than the normal 10yr, which is very nice too.
