Whisky Reviews for Fascadale Release No. 8 AD

- Aromas of poached pears, fruit, chocolate and a hint of lemon pie, grass and beeswax. Semi-dry on the palate, light oak notes and then a salty, peaty note.
- This is a 14yo non-disclosed Highland Park bottling.
I think HP can be pleasant, but this malt really does not have a lot to offer.
There are not any faults in this one, but it is not complex, there are no typical distillery aromas and there is a short finish. It is just sort of flat.
I cannot help thinking that this is the kind of malt that formerly was used for blends like Famous Grouse etc. No disrespect towards the blends, but I doubt this one needed to be bottled as a single malt.
