Taste note

  • Colour:

    Amber

  • Nose:

    On the nose you will get a typical Highland Park nose with aromas of honey, vanilla, soft spices, but also red forrest berries and some sherry. Hints of smoke, mild oak and sandalwood.

  • Palate:

    Same as the nose, soft mouthfeel, mild pepper, pinch of salt, heather honey, dried fruits (banana), and sugar sweetness hints of lemon peal and nutmeg

  • Finish:

    Actually more black pepper and peat on the finish. A medium long finish, fruity with vanilla and light touch of wood. Great balance between the vanilla and the honey.

  • Conclusion:

    Peatier than expected, but with all smoke wrapped up in fruit and vanilla. Supremely well-balanced, with a long and leafy finish. Unfortunately it wasn’t bottled at cask strength.
