Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 2002

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.48 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: as expected, a sherry board with dried fruit (plum and apricot) and many nuts, but also a somewhat musty oak note, some smoke is also included, toffee sweetness, some anise and a hint of a slightly sour note - but much more comes unfortunately not anymore

    Taste: The impression from the nose continues, much more intense sherry, slightly musty, Holt, sweetness with dried fruit, especially the plum becomes very intense

    Finish: medium in the beginning, very pleasant at first with sherry sweets, toffees, nuts, behind comes the ever stronger oak and the finish turns off towards licorice / anise / liquorice root

    with a few drops of water: here it opens etas, becomes more complex and also a little softer

    Conclusion: A solid, modern sherry whisky - but: The sherry is set up, almost artificial, it does not harmonize with the malt.Da bothers me from time to time again sparkling sour note and the mustiness of the oak. From Highland Park itself nothing comes through. In direct comparison to the first bottling for Germany this falls off here. And yet or just because of the color and for me too strong Sherry influence, this bottling will find his lover again. But I do not belong - 86 points
