Highland Park – 21 Years Old

Highland Park – 21 Years Old

Dram 6 of the @TheDramTeam launch Twitter Tasting. The sixth dram. The real treat of the package. Another bucket lister for me. 47.5% ABV Nose: Very subtle and inviting. Toasted hazelnuts. Syrup sweetness. Vanilla fudge. Palate: Very oily, grapefruit zest, golden syrup sucked off a spoon, pepper, sticky malt loaf, @ConistonBrewCo Oatmeal Stout And then it was all gone. Like a sultry maiden luring you in with subtle charms, leaving you helpless to resist then leaving you wanting more. A Lionel Richie…

Highland Park – 18 Years Old

Nose: Samphire grass, soggy salt marsh and brine combine with subtle dried fruits. After a little while zingy green apples and refresher sweets join the party. Palate: Very oily and chewy straight away. I like that. Pinapple, light smoke, pepper. Hints of the meat from the DO there too. After a little while freshly candied almonds and roast chestnuts.

Highland Park – Dark Origins

Dark Origins Nose: Big hit of sherry first up with marzipan and dried fruits mingled in. Really heady. Lingering spice. Freshly roasting coffee pushes through after a little while. The initial heady notes mellow very quickly in the air leaving behind a dark earthy smell and a hint of 3 in 1 oil in the background. Palate: Hints of dark smoke with spice and maple syrup. A definite note of meatiness in there like Scrumpy Cider and well cooked streaky…
