Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sweet tobacco. Scented: sandalwood, walnuts.
Palate: Sultanas, lemons, vanilla, butterscotch, toasted almonds. Very restrained sweetness.
Finish: Long and soothing. Late hint of spicy, heathery smoke.
Comment: Some drinkers might perfer this great whisky slightly younger and fresher. Those who like a touch of oak will find this very elegant.
9.0
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Powering bourbon sweetness. Lashings of oak and vanilla with liquorice and plummy fruit. Tired, but hanging on.
Palate: Creamy and spicy with a large smoky, oaky background. Just enough honey comes through to give a Highland Park signature.
Finish: Dry, chalky and some late sensuous peat lift this from a weary start. Lovely salty sea tang lingers, too.
Comment: This would never have survived another summer. Impressive brinkmanship, though still over-aged.
