Tasting notes
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Oily, with barley, ozone, starch, orange juice and soft smoke.
Palate: A carry-over of barley from the nose, with vanilla, subtle smoke and wood shavings.
Finish: Peppery and nutty, with a suggestion of peat. Medium in length.
Comment: Quite an easy-drinking, relatively lightweight Highland Park.
Taster   Joe Bates
Nose: Vanilla and caramel notes from those ex-Bourbon casks come to the fore here with a whiff of restrained smoke in the background.
Palate: A mouth feel of dairy cream gives way to intense crème brûlée, cracked black pepper and oak notes.
Finish: Dry and peppery with just a hint of peat smoke.
Comment: Rich and intense flavours make for a very drinkable whisky.
