Highland Park 15 yo
Ex-Sherry casks, American Oak
Color : bright gold.
Nose : heather, ripe fruit orchards, a hint of acidity offset by a touch of honey. The nose is well balanced and the flavors soft, although not erased.
Palate : the heather peat is more pronounced than for the nose. This is the first thing I notice. Then comes a texture resembling maple water : it’s not syrupy but it’s not flat water! The smells of the nose evolve towards orange chocolate and toasted hazelnuts. We feel a very small aftertaste of oak and cereals.
Finish :the finish is very soft and short, with a hint of the peat so characteristic of Highland Park!
Comments : the Highland Park that made me fall in love with the distillery !!! Unfortunately discontinued, fortunately I have a second one… but to buy again and again and again, as soon as the opportunity arises ! if you stumble upon this one, you should definitely buy it. For those of you who aren’t peat aficionado yet, let me tell you that it is very soft, and Highland Park does peat like no one else does.
