Highland Park 1977 Bicentenary Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
9 My favourite expression of whisky's greatest all rounder. Sets an incredibly high standard for Highland Park to maintain.

Highland Park 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Strangely similar to a golden rum - albeit a smoky one.

Highland Park 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.10%
7 A touch astringent for my tastes, but respectable. Ambassador, surely you should be really spoiling us?

Highland Park 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.10%
9 Have this one with dessert.

Highland Park 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.10%

Highland Park Dark Origins
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.80%
7 The sherry masks more subtle flavours so it feels a little one-dimensional.

Highland Park Earl Haakon
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
7 That whisky definitely needs water. But it lacks balance and charm. The alcohol is not mastered.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Highland Park Earl Magnus Edition 1
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.60%
8 A refreshing and enticing dram. Charming. an easy-going complexity. Water gives it a lovely silky feel.

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

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.

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

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Highland Park Hjarta
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.10%
8 It is almost like they have put the usual 12 Years Old on steroids. Great stuff.

Highland Park Loki
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.70%
8 An oaky character, slightly dour at first but opening on fruit and toffee. Be light when adding water.

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

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

Highland Park Single Cask Bottle for Park Avenue Liquors 1980
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.00%
8 Very satisfying flavours.

Highland Park St Magnus
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.00%
8 HP is on fire at the moment.

Highland Park Svein
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Quite an easy-drinking, relatively lightweight Highland Park.

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

Ileach Single Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Like Finlaggan, this must come from one of the Islay distilleries. It seems bigger, more rounded, but less assertive, than Finlaggan.
