Highland Park 25 Year Old - Small Batch (Cadenhead)
- Distillery: Highland Park
Release of 1086 bottles (probably 3-5 caks). Thanks to Šarūnas from whisky bar King and Mouse (Vilnius) for a nice gift from Scotland!
Aroma: significant sherry notes, burnt wood and caramelized sugar. Dry smoke and spice herbs are complemented with raisins, figs. Maple syrup with vanilla bar sticked with burnt sugar. Aroma style for me is somewhere between old and modern style sherried malts. The more time this malt takes, more subtle aromas comes - leather, black tea, old books, more dried fruits. With water I get more dry wood, dried fruits, some mandarines and clove.
The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
