Info: One of my favourite drams… I seem to have forgotten to review it!
Colour: Rich autumn gold.
Nose: Old heathery mushy peaty heathland on a sweet smelling summer evening. There’s some older slightly peppery oak notes. Hints of Love Heart sweets.
Palate: Fairly oily and smooth, slightly waxy with spices gently building. Backdrop of sweet malt and hints of smoke puffs. Almost a little fizzy on your tongue.
Finish: Gently slow and long, reminiscent of glowing embers… warming on your chest and nicely relaxing.
Thoughts: I’ve tried quite a few in the Highland Park range, but this is always one that I have a huge fondness for, the cask make up of it really works for me; it’s one I always have on my shelves. Sadly it’s very expensive, but isn’t everything at this age range now?
