  1. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Not bad HP, initially the aroma was quite spirituous and gave some damp, but breathing changed to a much better side, and in the glass under the lid development there was almost no, and without it very quickly everything went (poured into two different glasses at the same time and one all the time was covered). The apparent predominance of a bourbon barrel or sherry is not, but it seems that the whisky was aged in sherry barrels of the second filling, or there was a mixed extract with bourbon, a certain predominance of sherry is present, a denser and heavier taste and dark fruits.
    In taste, in principle, everything is the same, but quite clearly there is a certain honeyed sugary.
    A good, long finish in the same vein.
    A good specimen, as it often happens with the castles - the last sip - the most delicious :)
    Total - 88

  5. hartist scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Its tendency "vegetal" a little underlined does not make it perhaps not very polyvalent.
    • Nose
      Fresh, round and complex. Multiple scents make up a superb nose: orchard fruit honey, malt, plants (flowers, heather), sweet spices, marine touch (salty spray), mineral waxy. In short, a nice palette.
    • Taste
      The mouth starts with a spicy waxy, tinged with a hint of vegetal bitterness (beautiful heather, tobacco) then becomes complex with the addition of notes of honeyed fruit, sweet biscuits, a subtle hint of smoke and 'a marine marking (boat rope). I just love it!.
    • Finish
      Beautiful persistent finish on a sweet-bitter duality and a touch of salt of the most beautiful effect.

  6. Falnor scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Good Highland park, but sadly too expensive to justify the price
    • Nose
      Fresh outdoor sent, heather, slightly waxy, honey.
    • Taste
      Apple fresh and juicy. Citrus fruit like lemon. All very easy. Just a little bit of smoke that makes it bigger. Some herbals like anise or mint.
    • Finish
      Medium and balanced between the fruit, oak and smoke
