Okay, here is my first review ~ I heard some good reviews about the Highland Park from various places, was at the HUGE grocery-store-like liquor store, and may have been lost in the bottles hiding in the fancy boxes and tubes, with that blindness I was grabbed by the nice black box and bought it, without doing all the research I should have! I got it home and admired the bottle and uncorked it with a POP...exciting!!!
Nice color between 'sunlight' and 'pale straw'.
I always have my scotch neat in a rocks glass - on first sip it was very overwhelming, tried it again, then added some water. It seems too peaty for me; while sipping again my mind raced to figure out who I could possibly give this to - thinking it doesn't belong on my shelf!
I am sure this 'simplistic' review is nothing like others have posted, but I know what I like and peaty isn't my preference.
I will try it again, after all I paid the $50+ for the bottle and it is taking up space that a more worthy bottle could be...at least I don't have to dust that spot?
Cheers...here's to a future and more involved review!
