Review and Tasting


Sampled on 16/12/2012

Appearance:

Clear, deep coppery amber.

Aroma:

Smoked salted butter, fudge, fresh peach and apricot with a whiff of grilled pineapple, linseed oil, freshly cut sappy wood and seaweed. Water amplifies grilled pineapple notes.

Taste:

Smoky but slightly honey-sweet with cinnamon led spice, mocha coffee and a touch of eucalyptus. A splash turns this dram fresh, mellow, rich and luscious with grilled pineapple and richer fruitcake more evident with a warming gingerbread spice.

Aftertaste:

Dry and lightly smoky with fudge, cinnamon and bitter chocolate.

Overall:

The packaging of Highland Park's flagship malt has much changed over the decades, but has the liquid also changed?
