Highland Park 25 Year Old

Postby The Third Dram » Sat Feb 06, 2010 5:43 pm

My recent tasting notes on the 50.7% version:

"Deep auburn gold in hue. An almost unfathomably layered aroma. Scents of Christmas cake, dried apricots, buckwheat honey and candied lemon rind as well as subtle hints of earthiness and smouldering logs. The mouth-watering overture of spiced oak and leather-bound honey lozenges gradually spreads over the palate, depositing kernels of sweet maize tinged with Orkney peat and Salish smoked sea salt. Notions of pecans, crème brûlee, golden Chanterelle mushrooms and Seville orange zest follow through to the grand finale. This whisky exudes nuanced harmony and warmth in truly decadent fashion."

Yes, I like it! :wink:

Not sure NSF, as there are no identifying marks on the bottle. I think it's reasonable to assume this one represents one of the last before the 48.1%ABV release began to appear, though.
