Ah, an official Highland Park of no less than 21 years old, you won't just let that pass you by. It was the final part of our tasting at the distillery after our tour. The combination of the company, the location and the liquid in the glass, made that a memorable moment. Let's see if I can enjoy it just as much in the serenity of my study. Old school. That is the first thing that comes to mind when I put this malt to the nose. Old, dusty books. Followed by delicate floral notes of heather and wildflowers, which in turn is complemented by apricots, orange and marzipan. Hazelnuts and freshly polished leather. And then the peat: present without any doubt, but subtle and supportive. Yes, this is a great malt. On the palate, the wood immediately speaks for itself with a lot of pepper, nutmeg and woodsmoke. The delicious fruity notes of the nose are present, but the peat is now a lot less subtle. This malt becomes nice and powerful and rich with midpalate some baked apples and crème brûlée in the bargain. Walnuts and almonds do their thing. And I? I enjoy it to the fullest. The finish is not exactly short, but as far as I'm concerned it could be a little longer. Towards the end it becomes slightly drying. This is very satisfying. Brilliant HP.
