    By Johan, (Uncut); Highland Park 'High Dark Plan' 10th 1998/2009, 46%, Daily Dram - The Nectar - Orkney - 85/100
    Recognizable bittersweet HP nose with fruit (citrus), honey and (light) peat. The taste is fruity (apple) and sweet (vanilla, honey) and mixes nicely with the peat. Spice up after a while. Sweet and spicy finish. Pepper. Classic and therefore pleasant Highland Park.

  5. TDMartijn scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A bit lighter than the standard bottlings. A 'daily dram' indeed!

  6. Malt Hans scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Peaty and fruity aroma, olives, lime, pear,

    heather honey, lavender, eucalyptus and pine wood. Marzipan sweet taste,

    peat, pepper, lemon, mint, vanilla, resin and malt. Long, sweet, smoky

    and spicy end.

      Smooth and lots of fruits, peaches. And little little smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish, with a spicy end.
