Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1988 CA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.82 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Cadenheads have bottled a few HP Small Batches from 1988, most notably a 25 yo that were heavily sherried and most excellent. They also have a 26 yo, and now a 28 yo. The latter two were only sold in the American market I think. I feel like this 28 yo is a bit hot which I attribute to oak, but know that it's definitely not too oaky. Definitely sherried but an off note here and there. From a sample. I got a feeling that with time and oxygenation, this can be a 90 pointer.
