Fresh in the glass I thought of any x 20-year-old Speysider, the schnapps took just 5 minutes and water needed to get to your feet. I like to think that the good piece is 20+ years old, it has a lot of power in terms of volume percentages and flavors. In Blindbattle I would still separate Glen Garioch separately, but here's the following tip: Distillery: Highland Park, Age: 20yo, Alcohol: 56%, Barrel: Bourbon Hogshead.
In the first "train" mainly citrus, lemons and limes, somewhat restrained, which suggests a higher alcohol strength. Air produces darker notes, freshly weeded weeds, tree sap, ripe apples. A fine hint of vanilla, fresh black coffee, and glue. With water: first stingy woody, more alcohol, moment ... Intensely floral scented, turpentine, pine needles, resin. Shoe polish and old leather.
Amazing green, lots of limes, neat resin and earth. Today, every whisky is a Highland Park. It is definitely high-proof, with time a spicy bitterness. With water: round, oily. Clear smoke, old oak cabinet, lots of shoe polish, linden blossom, pine needles. With time in the mouth more and more turpentine and pine needles, black coffee, earth.
Medium long, coffee, bone-dry wood dust, lime, resin. No, command back. Long finish. Now that I have the pine needles in my nose once, they are gaining the upper hand here as well. Nothing is dry anymore.
