Taste note

  • Colour:

    Straw gold

  • Nose:

    Rich heather and gorse brush-smoke, camp-fires, with a sweetness of heather honey, slightly meaty, bbq meat, maple-smoked bacon, malty barley, grassy hay, floral, heather, violets, geranium

  • Palate:

    Full bodied and rich on the palate, heather honey bursts forth with a meaty and dry nature like beef jerky, the heather and gorse brush smoke are there too with toasted coconut, vanilla essence, but all with a dry mineralic flinty and smoky edge, the florality continues in the palate with parma violets and lavender cookies

  • Finish:

    Long floral smoke, drying and moreish

  • Conclusion:

    What a simply delicious dram delivered like the point of an ice-pick compared to the brutal sledgehammer of heavily peated Islay malts. A slight chameleon on the palate it subtly shifts in part due to the youth of the peated spirit and structured backbone of the older stock. No idea of the price yet but has made me want to visit Highland Park Distillery even more now!
