Highland Park, please put an affordable cask strength whisky in your core expressions. How dare you tease me with this limited bottling!

Nose: Very fruity, cherries, pineapple, green apple, cheesecake, oak. Lusciously sweet.

Palate: Initially creamy caramel. Then the rich fruits come forward with the caramel playing the supportive role, almost coating the fruits. A bit of smoke wanders throughout. Robust flavors.

Finish: The unique Orkney peat comes forward, but a bit more restrained than other HP's. A faint hint of char. At the very end, there's any extremely subtle note of pineapple that the smoke almost covers up. Wish it were a bit longer, but interesting nonetheless.

As an American, I feel that I am very fortunate to own a bottle of this rare whisky. Additionally, as an American, a part of me almost wishes that I didn't like this as much as I did because I'll probably never get another bottle. I will savor every drop.

94/100
