  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Less peaty than the 2005 edition, which allows for an even bigger influence of the bourbon barrels. Apart from that their profiles are very similar.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, apple, caramel, green banana, malt sugar, grass and a whiff of smoke. More apple when adding water.
    • Taste
      Apple, smoke, vanilla, citrus, grass and tobacco. With water: More vanilla, less smoke.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, apple, smoke, malt and banana.

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Difficult, for which I really needed 4cl, parallel with and without water, dripped, several times Notes written and deleted again. Pure, he likes me now, with water, I can not get anything out. But he would not be a € 60 candidate for me. Is that good or not, can you recommend it? ... I do not know, that's not how I'm going to get it. But it is often the case with HP and me. ;-)
    • Nose
      Honey, vanilla, nice bourbon sweets, also has sugared biscuits, a slightly bitter touch - lime and 10-year-old dry herbaceous herbs (rather leave water out, does not make it any nicer)
    • Taste
      strong crispy-sweet, sugary, neat pepper, then dark chocolate (you should abkännen the 57.9%, even here brings thinning little, tickling a little pineapple out, but then he is again too watery and is somehow bitter)
    • Finish
      long and peppery, and a neat bittersweet, most likely coffee ... but there's another pinch of pineapple

  6. MasterOfPuppets scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A tasty drop. For a young Highland Park the smoke is very discreet
    • Nose
      Malty sweet, fruity, hay, pear
    • Taste
      Spicy, caramel, light smoke, pear
    • Finish
      Pretty long
