Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: One of the most herbal noses around. Exceptional.
Palate: Perhaps the most melt-in-the mouth malt of all time. A hint of something fruity moistens the mouth.
Finish: Lazy and light; smoky barley and mildly kippery oiliness.
Comment: Distilled during one of the best periods in HP's recent history. If only they had bottled at 46!! One of all time greats, for all that.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sherry. Toast. Polished oak.
Palate: Rich. Very creamy. Freshly peeled Satsumas. Very bitter black chocolate. Astonishing length.
Finish: Violets. Lingering, scented, fragrant, smokiness.
Comment: My favourite expression of whisky's greatest all rounder. Sets an incredibly high standard for Highland Park to maintain.
