Highland Park 25yo Single Malt 700ml
Ever tried a perfect whisky? Well this could be your chance! This bottling of 25 year old Highland Park single malt is made with whisky taken from ex-sherry and bourbon casks and bottled at 45.7% abv, slightly lower than previous 25 year old expressions from the Orkney distillery. It was awarded 100 points out of 100 at the 2013 Ultimate Spirits Challenge in New York; a perfect score!
Nose: Soft, plump cherries, toasted walnut, crumbly pastry and brown sugar.
Palate: Stewed fruits, sweet vanilla and some classic Orkney peat. A hint of spiciness, not too much though.
Finish: Sweet, long and delicious.
Overall: This really is a fantastic single malt from Highland Park, tonnes of flavour but balanced admirably.
