Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 1988 CA

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.39 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      No peat? If a little bit: very light with vegetal accents. Rather closed. Some notes of honey that, shy at first, assert themselves. Almonds. Wax. Vanilla. More and more caressing, but too wise - and not very generous.
      A few drops of water bring butterscotch and lemon, without boosting the volume.
    • Taste
      Velvety, with an extremely broad spectrum of spices. Balanced on honey and spices - which is for me the signature of a good Highland Park.
      More juicy with a little water.
    • Finish
      Very large presence where the diversity of spices is preserved, but with the strength and more! Slight bitterness in length.
      With a little water, we have a superb depth with notes of coffee with milk!

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 3/5
      Mouth 4/5
      Final 4/5 (5/5 with water)

    [May, 2017]  I had this during a warehouse tasting at Campbeltown and bought a bottle for 150 GBP.  The taste is quite sweet with a significant liquorice spike.  Unfortunately it gets a little bitter in the end due to heavy tannins.

  3. sagara-kun scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A little classic nose but reveals in the mouth. Very good and very beautiful texture.
    • Nose
      Nose on yellow and white fruit (pear apple). Pepper
      A little bit of eucalyptus. A little floral.
    • Taste
      On the palate quite creamy, sweet.
      Yellow fruits, wood, camphor, it is super balanced and good, coiled.
    • Finish
      Final on tropical fruits. Papaya. White pepper.
