  1. Yarema scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A slight disappointment from the expected ...) Not bad - but as for this age and as for HP, a very strange whisky. You can drink it but not for this money.

  7. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "An outstanding sherried Highland Park, this is from a single 1973 sherry

    cask - bottled at thirty years old in the early Noughties, this puts

    the distillery bottling of the same age to shame."
