This is a Highland Park vintage. Distilled in 1998 an bottled from "selected casks" in 2010 making it 12 years old.

  • Nose: Quite briny and road tar really dominate, some sweetness, heather honey and floral notes underneath along with some spice. With Water a kind of vanilla custard is there along with the neat elements

  • Pallet: Beautiful honey note, maritime noes are more restrained, spices there too. With Water huge floral involvement and herbal notes bit of bite and dryness

  • Finish: floral notes comes through more, spices also linger around no Highland Park smoke however. With Water much the same

  • Mark – neat 7.9, with water 7.9

This whisky isn't bad at all, but it certinally is not as good as their standard 12 year old which is a beautiful dram. It lacks HP character where is the gentle peat and wafting smoke? It is interesting but i'm not thinking another dram is in order
