Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1989 AD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.65 points

  1. Skywalka scored this whisky 92 points Newbie

    Oh man this is lovely stuff. Give it some time after opening and it really rewards. Think smoked/chargrilled, almost incensed citrus peels and tropical fruits (especially peach) laced with Jasmine essence, combined with a melange of dried/smoked spices and herbs (like tea leaves). It reminds me of a mango-infused green tea, only earthier. Of course there's more to it than that (fudge-like vanilla, waxy honey, nut oils and faint maritime/umami character), but that's the overriding impression I get from this whisky.

  2. dramspotter scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This is a bottle to sit on. Yes, it doesn't linger enough but what is presented is so satisfying.
    • Nose
      86 86
      sharp bourbon sting; almost going for that coastal/briny tang - or am I imagining things? Nothing dry about this nose, it has quite a lot of honeyish sweetness in there (albeit that is a characteristic of taste)

      wow, what a lovely 47% welcome. Sweet and with a fruity sea of tastes underneath

      short->medium; where did you go? that lovely taste ebbs away too quickly - Please come back!
