Highland Park 15

Postby Blue Note » Mon Dec 20, 2010 10:38 pm

Hi All.

Wondering if anyone has an opinion or has any experience with the current HP 15.
This is the OB at 43% not the cask strength one.

I have found it less than memorable. The 12 and 18 have much more to offer

I've found it to e hit and miss through the years. Had different bottles from each of the three bottling styles since 1996 and some were very good others forgettable. I can't say that any particular bottle style would offer you a better chance than another one.

It's definitely a departure from the 12 and 18 in my experience. I recall my first impressions being somewhat negative, but more recent samplings have been quite good.

Go with the 12 or 18.
If you can afford it the 25 is a real treat.

I'll add my voice to this chorus. The 12yo is as good and much cheaper and the 18yo, while more expensive is much better. The 25yo is wonderful.
