Bottled exclusively for the Scandinavian market, Highland Park Cask Strength Edition (57.1% ABV) is raising expectations. Youthful and almost reminiscent of a bourbon, the aroma offers vanilla, honey and wood polish. With water, you get hints of vegetation, moss and sour berries. Tasting rough and fairly immature, bitter herbs dominate the taste before distant peatiness starts to emerge. The finish is swift, mineral and a bit metallic. Did HP really believe that thirsty Norsemen wouldn't notice the lack of depth and complexity? Well, most certainly don't...
