Gavin D. Smith

80
Nose
Oily, with barley, ozone, starch, orange juice and soft smoke.
Palate
A carry-over of barley from the nose, with vanilla, subtle smoke and wood shavings.
Finish
Peppery and nutty, with a suggestion of peat. Medium in length.
Comment
Quite an easy-drinking, relatively lightweight Highland Park.

Joe Bates

77
Nose
Vanilla and caramel notes from those ex-Bourbon casks come to the fore here with a whiff of restrained smoke in the background.
Palate
A mouth feel of dairy cream gives way to intense crème brûlée, cracked black pepper and oak notes.
Finish
Dry and peppery with just a hint of peat smoke.
Comment
Rich and intense flavours make for a very drinkable whisky.
