Tasting Notes by Donski
so thanks to the tax man i was able to purchase some whiskys to try/enjoy, these were Talisker 10yo, lagavulin 16yo, glenkinchie 12yo, cragganmore 12yr, dalwhinnie 15yo and highland park 12yo
So far i have tried the Talisker, Dalwhinnie 15yo, glenkinchie 12, cragganmore 12 and Lagavulin 16yo and have enjoyed them all with the talisker and lagavulin being the stand outs so far.
Now its time for the highland park 12. I have heard alot of good things about this whisky so was very excited about trying this.
Nose: Fruit, sweetness and smoke. very nice nose.
Taste: Fruity with smoke and sweetness like the nose but with a very nice amount of peat. Very well balanced and awesome taste.
Finish: Mainly smoke and slightly drying. Last a while until the smoke goes away.
Overall this is so far the best whisky i have tried. I am very happy with the whiskies i recieved with my income tax return and think i will be buying a couple of these again mainly Talisker, Lagavulin and highland park.
