Highland Park Distillery
That dance might have been led by Fred Astaire. The great all-rounder in lean and energetic mood. Makes it look easy. Try it with a late-night movie.
17 Years Old, Cask 2903
Islands (Non Islay)
Nose: Smoke, shading into oak and sherry.
Palate: Notably creamy. Distinctively fruity. Honeyed. Very spicy. Herbal. Faint hint of seaweed.
Finish: Lively. As though all the flavours had come on stage to dance a finale.
Comment: That dance might have been led by Fred Astaire. The great all-rounder in lean and energetic mood. Makes it look easy. Try it with a late-night movie.
Nose: Rich, soft. Gorgeous: fudge with peaches in syrup, honey, baklava, star anise and caraway spice. Heathery smoke. You could nose this forever
Palate: Big, sweet, silky. A beautiful, elegant mix of heathery smoke, Moroccan spices, ripe fruit and a hint of chocolate. Perfect harmony.
Finish: Chewy, long.
Comment: Gorgeous, one of the best I've ever tried.
