Whiskyfun.com:

Highland Park 18 yo (56.4%, OB, Distillery Exclusive, American oak butt, cask #2865, 606 bottles, 2016) Four stars and a half Colour: gold. Nose: perfect creamy vanilla and honey, with some fresh orange juice on top of that and a few bits of fresh mint. That’s a perfect combination, not utterly complex, but the balance is flabbergasting. Indeed, vanilla, honey, oranges, mint. I repeat… With water: rather things from a forest, moss, fern, pine needles, humus, mushrooms… All that complements vanilla, honey, oranges and mint to perfection. Mouth (neat): indeed, this is perfect, although it would just be a combination of four elements, namely vanilla, honey, oranges, mint. Exactly the same as on the nose when neat, plus a few oak spices, cinnamon, cloves, star anise… With water: same with just touches of green oak, which translates into green tea. So, green tannins. Finish: rather long and grassier, although the three musketeers are still kicking around. Those would be vanilla, honey, oranges and mint. A touch of wood smoke in the aftertaste. Comments: extremely good but you had or will have to fly to Orkney to get this sexy baby. SGP:652 - 89 points.

I made the flight to Inverness and drive to Orkney :)
