Gavin D. Smith

87
Nose
Quite overtly sherried, with figs, raisins, spicy Jaffa oranges, cedar and soft leather.
Palate
Silky in the mouth, old leather, muted spice, ginger, sherry, sweet peat, a hint of mint.
Finish
Long, with dark chocolate, figs, smoke and spice.
Comment
A lovely old Highland Park, but a bit hard on the wallet.

Joe Bates

90
Nose
Lots of old wood on the nose, cedar and oak mixed with Autumnal bonfire smoke.
Palate
A whisky of great power: Golden Syrup sweetness, warming spice and gentle smoke.
Finish
A very long, sweet finish which stays on the palate for ages.
Comment
An intense, complex flavour which you'd expect for a €1000 whisky – a very regal dram out of the reach of most.
