Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1986 AD
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.84 points
- Bought this bottle for 120€ at Whisky Auction (September 2017).
- A very (maybe a little too) sweet whisky.
I can imagine it goes very well with certain dishes like red meat or chocolate
Orange fruit, citrus, tangerine, almond,
Cacao, honey, nougat, caramel, vanilla, raisins and candy (wine-gums)
Gentle, warm and sweet. Nice balance, a lot of various fruit tones
- blind tasting
wax, citrus, nuts -walnuts, pepper and tobacco leafs
wax, oily, old, honey and a toch of smoke
medium drying with caramel, vanilla, citrus and nuts
- Quite peaty for a Highland Park, but this is enriched by what I expect to have been a refill sherry cask, which adds those notes of leather and red fruits. Great balance, one of the best Highland Parks I have ever tasted.
Sugared almonds, vanilla sugar, leather, cookies, malt, currants, lime and caramel. After a while the peat kicks in, and if you wait a little longer (especially after adding some water) sherry notes such as cranberry and fudge start popping up.
Currants, vanilla, peat, almond, leather, dark chocolate, toffee, cigar boxes and tobacco. With a few drops of water also some red fruits like cranberry.
Peat dust, dark chocolate, vanilla, currants and cigar boxes.
