Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 40-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.43 points

  1. Lorion scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Hm difficult. Partly terrific, partly woody. The nose is at 82 (partly under 80, partly in the 87 range). The palate is at 85 (sometimes well below 80, after swallowing, but partly in the 93 range). The finish is dad highlight. I give it 92nd Overall rating there - even if that is the high and low is not fair - 86. Interesting and sometimes outstanding whisky, which unfortunately loses significantly with its sour wood.
    • Nose
      Fruity wood. Spicy oak is in the foreground. Slightly untreated wood, dill, turmeric and intense tobacco. Beside everything there are a lot of fruits. Sweet apples, oranges, some grapefruit and peach. Briefly, something acidic flashes out, not fruit acid, but some woody bitter acid. The oak takes over the dominance. It gets drier and a bit more chocolaty. Sherry Ankkänge are here. Then it gets fresher again. The slightly sour wood gets even stronger. But there are always very intense fruits. Physalis. Time makes herbs stand out more. Green tea, then strong herbal tea. Eucalyptus. While the whisky is in the mouth, there is also some tobacco in the nose.
    • Taste
      Sweet at first, but only briefly. Then subtle fruits. The wood then takes over quickly. Woody and slightly sour. Not as intense and full as your nose would expect. Tobacco comes to me swallowing. Orange peels in the dessert. The second sip is sweeter and a bit more intense. The oak is not so obtrusive - until you swallow. At the third sip, the bitterness already sets in, while the whisky is still in the mouth. The tobacco box is not tipped. Old pipe, pipe stoppers.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity - apricot and dried peach - and very bitter. Espresso. Great!
