    Highland Park 13 yo 2003/2016 (60.3%, OB for Dannebrog, cask #1933, refill butt, 648 bottles)

    Colour: amber. Nose: a leafy and elegant sherry. Hints of treacle, liquorice, ginger cake, spiced orange liqueur, various fruit cordials and a handful of salted peanuts. Clean, fresh and rather interesting - in a good way. We’re treading and finely balanced line between distillate and cask here and I find it quite captivating. With water: lemon cough drops, hessian, various shades of medicine, herbal qualities, soot, heather ales. Once again we are pleasingly close to ‘Highland Park’ flavour. Mouth: well-rounded, spicy, earthy, mushroomy, plenty of dark, stewed fruits and a rather leathery and salty sherry profile. The salty edge really becomes quite pronounced. There’s also a gamey meaty quality - cured meats and hints of old pinot noir. Hessian, bitter herbal notes, very dark chocolate and fruit-flavoured tobaccos. With water: mineral oil, salted liquorice, prunes, plum sauce, damp earth, menthol tobacco, herbal toothpaste - excellent! Finish: long, sweet barley sugars, boiled citrus sweets, camphor, chocolate lime sweets (rather old school confectionary this finish), tarragon and mint chocolate. Comments: Another excellent cask that really puts the HP character front and centre, although we’re still not quite at the 90 mark in my wee book.

    SGP: 662 - 89 points.
