    The nose is brilliant - this is already worth the money. The rest doesn't stay behind at all. The best Highland Park I ever had - it's on the level of any of the top whiskys. Having said that I also agree that this one is really legendary!
    • Nose
      Very fresh and intensive tropical fruits, ripe bananas, pineapples, little citrus , oranges and also apricots. Good sweetness like honey. And agreed there is also nectar. Faint touch of peat and smoke - and salty.
    • Taste
      Punchy, peppery, oily, creamy, liquorice - then sweet and fruity like citrus fruits and again ripe tropical fruits. Now the oak notes come up strongly - this is the phase when some notes of bitterness come up but still in a great balance with the sweetness.
    • Finish
      Long, warm, burning and the oak notes make the finish.

    Rating from Whiskyfun by Serge:
    Highland Park 30 yo 1955/1985 (53.2%, OB for Intertrade, 216 bottles)  Colour: straw. Nose: wow, it’s superb at first nosing! Lots of nectar, bunches of flowers from the fields, acacia honey, pollen… and also lots of coastal notes (sea air, sea water, oysters). What a fantastic balance! So complex and compact at the same time. Whiffs of peat mixed with very ripe plums, coffee cream, cappuccino, crystallised apricots… Just superb! It then gets smokier and smokier. If the palate matches the nose, this one should be an stunner. Let’s see…Mouth: yes, yes, yes! What a great attack! So clean, so pure, so ‘natural’! Creamy, spicy, smoky and perfectly fruity (there’s no point in listing all the fruits but I noticed longans), peppered apple pie, pear juice, high-end cider… This old Highland Park has everything, going any further would be maltporn, I’m afraid. 96 points (thanks, Luc)
