Nose
Odd, slightly sweaty start then berries, banana, green grapes. Vanilla to the fore but seems fragile.
Palate
Starts spicy(cinnamon and allspice) with a slight soapiness, but gets sweeter and juicier as it progresses. Lightly perfumed.
Finish
Gentle light, floral.
Comment
Couldn't be more different from the other Highland Park. That's casks for you!

Nose
At first, a distinctive fudgy note, closer to tablets. Then becomes malty with a grassy note. Wet hay.
Palate
Sweeter than expected. A smooth but vivid texture. More fruit than on the nose. Cooked plums in a gingery syrup.
Finish
Dry, warm and spicy. Slightly sherbety.
Comment
A lively character, delivering more than the first nose lets you expect. The alcohol is perfectly mastered.
