That Boutique-y Whisky Company Highland Park
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.70%
9 A fruity little number, which is well balanced with enough earthy tones to play well with the flighty fruits. Yum!

Highland Park Ragnvald
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.60%
9 Nicely balanced and complex. Classic Highland Park and the pick of the Warrior pack.

Machrie Morr Cask Strength
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.40%
7 Neat, a real sinus clearing malt! Diluted, the oak grips a little too much.

Highland Park Thorfinn
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.10%
8 A lovely old Highland Park, but a bit hard on the wallet.

Highland Park Sigurd
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Clear evidence of a higher proportion of Spanish oak-matured spirit here.

Single Malts of Scotland Tobermory 1994
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
8 My only quibble is that it's a bit dry on the finish. Best with a drop of water.

Talisker Dark Storm
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.80%
8 ?Potent, yet inviting, this has plenty going on to keep the keenest of palates entertained with it.

Edinburgh Whisky Library Collection Highland Park
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 An impressive spirit but far too perfumed for more than one glass.

Highland Park Harald
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Getting close to what we expect our Highland Parks to be.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Isle of Arran Distillery Smugglers' Series Vol.1 'The Illicit Stills'
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.40%
8 A big, malty dram that needs some water to assess.

Highland Park Einar
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Nicely balanced, not overly complex.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Ledaig Batch 2
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.50%
8 The distillery character here is unmistakable! However there are just enough other elements to balance.

HIghland Park Freya
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.20%
8 A classic Bourbon cask maturation. Refreshing and satisfying. A good springtime malt to enjoy with smoked salmon.
