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.
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.
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.
Inchgower 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 A bit restrained initially, then unveils a charming vibrant sweetness. Well-balanced.
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.90% 7 I'm an Inchgower fan but I'd want more from a whisky of this age.
Inchmurrin 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 Very scenty and sweet. A restorative. Perhaps after a bath or swim?
Inverey 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 On the bland side. The overall impression is of lightness and sweetness, but a nice touch of balancing dryness in the finish.
Inverleven 1979 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.10% 7 This whisky definitely needs water to extinguish the fire. Would have benefited from a bottling at a lower strength.
Inverleven Deoch an Dora 1973
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.50% 8 A charming thirst-quencher. No water please. It is perfect straight.
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.
Isle of Jura 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 A lovely aperitif.
Isle of Jura 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00% 7 For an islander Jura is often thought to be something of a lightweight, but it has hidden depths.
