Highland Park 5 Year Old Tasting Notes

Nose: A delicate blackberry scent, while the light smoky notes add depth and complexity. Earthy grassiness and briny notes are also present, alongside a hint of tobacco.

Palate: Thick and indulgent, with a mouthfeel that is both creamy and rich, like Yucatan honey. Limestone and prune flavours dominate the palate, along with a subtle sweetness that is reminiscent of whipped cream. 18 months in an Amontillado quarter cask has added another layer of depth. A subtle sweetness that is reminiscent of Dutch ‘stroop’.

Finish: Long and satisfying, with a sweet peat flavour that is complemented by notes of milk chocolate and tantalizing citrus.

Overall: This whisky might be young, but it’s a true masterpiece for its age, offering a complex yet harmonious profile that is sure to captivate even the most experienced of connoisseurs. The first ever WhiskyDudes bottling that isn’t cask strength! They did feel the need to bring this down from its high 65-ish to 55%.
