Nose

Toffee, werthers original, miel, avec aussi des notes florales, dont un peu de bruyère. Plutôt agréable et engageant. Légère fraîcheur de pomme verte

Taste

Début de bouche décevant, sur l'alcool, l'amertume, le végétal. Puis l'on retrouve, avec une certaine onctuosité, les notes du nez (toffee, caramel) et un peu de chocolat noir.

Finish

Fumée de charbon, toffee, bruyère

Comments

Bon produit, mais qui fait un peu jeune.

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.

Senior Brand Ambassador Martin Markvardsen chose  mainly bourbon casks for this HP-edition. Quite exceptional  because Highland Park normally matures on sherry casks.

have a dram good time! My Collection

Nose

A farmy, and also oily and waxy quality. Reminds me of some Clynelish. Barely any peat. Hay, grass, oranges and also a bit malty. Very fresh and appealing. I like it a lot, but after ten to fifteen minutes it does become musty.

Taste

Peatier than the nose, but still very subtle. It is grainy, there is some tree bark, something earthy as well. Herbs (mint) and citrus surface after a couple of sips.

Finish

Spicy and peaty, but very short. The least enjoyable aspect of this Highland Park.

Comments

A more than decent pick by Martin Markvardsen. The nose is excellent, especially before it gets musty. The taste is nicely balanced, but the finish is where this whisky falls short. It would've scored a couple of point higher with a longer, more complex finish.

Initially very sweet and malty/yeasty nose, with softer notes of peat smoke and the traditional HP heather/honey only sneaking through after a while in the glass. Quite different in that respect to the standard 12yo OB. A drop of water released additional hints of citrus fruits and accentuated the malty/yeasty aspects. Tastes much younger than 10yo on the palate, with quite a raw, feisty nature. Rather thin and mono-dimensional, lacking the softer elements I associate with the 12yo OB. Medium length finish with only just a small hint of the HP smokiness I love. Given how cheap you can pick up a bottle of the 12yo OB in supermarkets etc these days, I couldn't justify paying extra for this bottle.

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me, than a full frontal lobotomy.
