Highland Park 21 Year Old

Reviewed on Wed 09 Mar, 2016

I'm probably a couple of drams past my best right now, but this is an excellent whisky.

This was the star of the show at our Norwich Whisky Meetup. I've had a few too many samples to be too clever about this review, however (!), I have a small, small amount of this left and it was definitely the most popular whisky of the night, so I'll attempt to recount my experiences here...

On the nose: Sherry, very rich - but there's a little smoke underneath everything giving it a bit of oomph.

The taste: More smoke, sugar sweetness, sherry, and heather and rich fruits. It's good.

The finish: Long and rich. Rounds out very nicely.

Personally... OK, I've got very little of this left over after our meetup, and I'm probably a couple of drams past my best right now, but this is an excellent whisky, as you'd expect from a quality distillery like Highland Park at this kind of age. £150 a bottle though!
