Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Quite floral, peaches and syrup, green apple, orange juice, lightly toasted oak, iced tea, a little honey, a touch of amaretto. The sherry that is present is fragile and almost disappears with water.
Taste: Oak, honey, pepper, ginger snaps, rose water. Do I detect a bit of soap?
Finish: Orange zest and ginger, assertive oak. That faint soapy note returns. Very faint peat.
This 21 year old is very floral and lacks that pronounced Orkney peat, which to me is out of character for Highland Park. Additionally, that soapy note keeps me from falling in love with it. It seems that this one didn't strike me as much as it did other folks because I know that a lot of people love it.
