Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 2004

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.13 points

  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I tasted it at the Uisge 2019 Finnish whisky festival. It is a nice whisky, quite complex and balanced as for 12 yo. This bottling is released to celebrate 100 years of Finnish independence but I doubt it is worthy enough for that. It's a good expression but just above the average, nothing really special. For the century of independence a way better cask could be selected.
    • Nose
      Sweet, dried fruits, liquorice, some medicinal notes, leather, getting fresher after adding water
    • Taste
      Sweet, peppery, caramelly, minerally, tones of berry jam, orange peel
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, nutty, marmalade and oaky notes

  2. Thermidor scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Between this and cask 6367 for Finnish whisky enthusiasts, the latter is the better one but only slightly and because of the stronger sherry cask influence in it. With both bottlings I'm not entirely convinced by the distillate. No off notes or anything disastrous. It just feels like it could do with a deeper finish and a less flabby body. I prefer both of these to the OB 18yo though, but only barely (OB 18 85pts, this one 86pts and cask 6367 87). I would not pay the jacked up auction prices for these casks or their sisters.
