  1. vlad78 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Excellent release. Strong, rich, multi-faceted.

      First, the notes of the parquet varnish, the room in which these works were recently carried out, rise. Then rises the sweetness of prunes and grape pastilles, warm buckwheat honey and black tea.
    • Taste
      92 92
      The taste is sweet, bright, warm, dark, viscous, like molasses, or jelly, with a part of the varnish.

      The aftertaste is sweet, viscous, long, fiery.

    Serge says:

    Highland Park 1983/2003 (56.4%, OB, cask #1096, 440 bottles) We already tried this one and really loved it, but never wrote proper tasting notes. Colour: full amber. Nose: a lot of sherry again but this is much more subtle, fruity and clean, despite the rather obvious notes of gunpowder. ‘Good’ rubber band, apricot jam, heather honey, hints of peat, wood smoke, wet newspaper... And fresh mint, dill and chives. Truly superb. With water: amazing development, with even more of everything. A tad less peaty and smoky than the SMWS but the fresh herbs got even bolder... But you really have to like gunpowder – and balsamic vinegar - here. Mouth (neat): totally exceptional! Various fruits, various herbs (a lot of mint) and various honeys. Goes very far in all three directions. With water: it got really exceptional now. Rich, complex, multi-dimensional (phenolic, herbal, fruity and candied). Finish: extremely long, compact yet rich, with the oak starting to play its part. Comments: an amazing middle-aged expression of an amazing distillery. SGP:764 – 93 points.
