Nose
Fragrantly peaty.
Palate
Good flavour development, beautifully balanced as it unfolds. Fragrantly smoky, then nutty, becoming flowery, and finally honeyish.
Finish
Late, clean, appetising, smokiness.
Comment
Very good indeed as a lightish, delicate, interpretation of Highland Park.

Jim Murray

85
Nose
A big, slightly brawny, oaky nose with diffused peaty notes.
Palate
Immediately dry as the oak bites hard, but the peat and honey offer traditional Orcadian riches.
Finish
Long, with vanilla and a rich grapey fruitiness. The peat hangs on to the very end.
Comment
A pretty old and slightly tired malt but the richness of the peat and malt, and the harmony they create, makes this a delicious dram. Big stuff.
