My tasting notes for Highland Park 14yr Lone Star Cask #2310

Postby talisker10 » Sat Apr 18, 2009 8:20 pm

There were only about 570 bottles of this produced for the State of Texas. I would highly recommend picking it up if you see it.

Here's my notes:

Highland Park 14yr 56.7% ABV (1991-2006) Bottled from Cask #2310 for the Lone Star State

Color and Pour : Amber, very thick, almost syrupy

Nose: Little or no alcohol tinge despite 56.7% ABV. Honey, caramel, toffee, oranges.

Palate: Honey, oranges, dark chocolate, caramel (like the caramel in a very good chocolate covered caramel candy)

Finish: A little salty with a hint of smoke, medium long finish

Not that I have had THAT many whiskies (maybe 30?) but this ranks very high. Normally I go for the Islay and Talisker, but if you offered me a bottle of Laph 10 CS and this HP it would be a tough choice.
