Not a typical Highland Park aroma, bittersweet including malt, sherry, liquorish and treacle.

The bittersweet warning signs on the nose are evident in the flavours too, a cloying sweetness combines with the bitter notes of liquorish to make an unhappy ensemble, for me at least. The finish brings some solace as the bitterness wins out and provides a nice clove enriched spicy end.

A malt seemingly at odds with itself. However this bottle has sat on my shelves for too long for this particular version to be around for anyone else to buy. Hopefully more recent bottling are up to the “Parks” usual standards.
