  1. pere scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    A near perfect combination of old style sherry and smoke. Very fresh (menthol, blackcurrant leaves, some salt), a bit dirty and sweet smoke with mouthwatering sherry fruitiness.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    From a full mini.

      Floral sweetness. Strawberries, peach, honey, and fresh flowers -- not the perfume-y type, thank goodness. Balanced.

      Wow, doesn't feel like 57% AT ALL. Feels like 40%! It's supposed to be 100 euro proof. So soft initially. Then, a bit metallic, dusty, cardboard. Ahhh, the curse of the mini. You never know if this tastes like the full bottle.

      Kinda flat at the end. A bit bitter. A bit metallic.

      First time a 57% ABV feels like a 40% to me. A major disappointment.

      Do people refill mini's? It's certainly old, but I just don't get the excitement people have for this....

    Beautiful old Highland Park without age, from my point of view here very overrated, good to drink and delicious ... nice to try to taste but I have had more delicious ... priced, of course, completely unimportant
