Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 10-year-old

20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.08 points

  1. Glennie scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Light smoke. Hint of new make but in a nice way. Mild toffee and heather honey. Highland Park allright, but a little light.
    Mouth: Fits the nose. Sweet and honeyed at first. Then a light spicy kick. Even some hint of dried fruits and fresh white fruits like honey melon. Slight smoke and bitterness towards the end.
    Finish: Rather short. A little spiciness lingers on for a short while.  Then some bitter notes that are neither pleasant nor unpleasant.
    All in all a rather acceptable entry malt, but nothing you will remember for long. I will properly use this to warm up my taste buds for more challenging and interesting malts.

  4. AdamsB scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Whisky spent 10 years in sherry oloroso barrels before it was poured into bottles. About 10% of the content is distillates, which matured in barrels of the first filling. It is a slightly peat whisky containing about 20 PPM phenols. Interestingly, it comes in two versions with 40% and 43% power.
    • Nose
      Sweet, slightly peaty, sherry, orange, sea salt, citruses, vanilla, peaches, apples.
    • Taste
      Sweet, mild, peat, mrksa salt, apples, honey, spices, vanilla, light herb, sherry, nuts
    • Finish
      Sweet, vanilla, peach, slightly peat, dark chocolate, oak.

    Very light HP, but it would have a potential.

      Floral and thin. Milk caramel, honey, yellow fruits, citruses and touch of salted peat.

    • Nose
      83 83
      Tender smoke, heather and honey, very little sherry. Very complex.
    • Taste
      78 78
      Very mild, malty and sweet. Falls in comparison to the nose.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Medium long, easy to drink. Sherry sweet and oak. Something too shallow for me.
