Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Burnt orange and vanilla.
Palate: Rounded, with soft fruits, burnt toast and sherry cask maturation in evidence.
Finish: Dry leaves and woodsmoke.
Comment: Pleasant but undramatic. I was a little disappointed to find out it was Highland Park... surely we can do better than this?
Taster   Owen Barstow
Nose: Malty, nutty, biscuity, mixed dried fruit (apricots?). Some creamy toffee and the faintest whiff of smoke.
Palate: More dried fruit - tea loaf? Sweet and bitter. Vaguely winey, too.
Finish: On the short side and somewhat tannic. Oxidisation? Faint smoke?
Comment: I find Port and even Madeira characteristics here. Complex enough, but probably not to everyone's liking.
