My Personal Tasting Notes:
Nose: Drinking neat you are immediately hit by a slight prickle on the nose with a warming yet mild sherry. There is a spicy note with fresh pear and a hint of Heather and very mild smoke.
Taste: Initially your tongue will tingle, the sherry on the nose finds it's way into the taste yet doesn't dominate. A sweet almost honey taste then becomes prominent with a faint heather note again. You can definitely taste the smoke although it's quite mild and mixes well with the initial sweetness.
Finish: Smoke persists with the heather and honey note quickly Disappearing leaving a dry aftertaste.
With a teaspoon of water added and waiting 15 minutes:
Nose: The heather note really stands out and as time goes by the honey becomes even more prominent. The slight prickle you initially got has gone and in its place the sherry note pronounces itself even more.
Taste: Intense Honey and Heather with the sweetness from the sherry wood influence persisting throughout.
Finish: Smoke intensifies and the sweetness quickly turns dry. At the very end i got a re-occurrence of the sherry.
Highland park has three trademarks that should be in every bottle and will identify it as a good one.Read more ›
Highland Park is a remarkably characterful and complex drink. It has a wonderful smokiness tempered by sweet honey tones and rich background sherry flavour. The intensity of flavour is every bit the match for Islay malts, though does not have those strong peat high notes. And it is a mouthful of character that lasts a fantastically long time in the mouth. Highland Park is now top of my shopping list, as soon as I have finished paying for Christmas.

Yes, it's got everything that's already been said here, but it's also a slight disappointment because it's too restrained in the flavours as far as i'm concerned. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Mr. C. L. Landers
