Product Description

Featured in the 1001 whiskies you must try before you die book (48.3% version quoted)

"Honey,spice,fruit and peat are pretty much in place even at this age,though it's oak that dominates here.This is both a fragile old man anda big hearted bruiser."

Featured in Ian Buxton's 101 whiskies to try before you die book

Nose: Suprisingly delicate and refined: still fresh and distinctively "Highland Park" with honey, chocolate and soft smoke

Palate: If a whisky can posses "the X factor" this has got it-just sensationally complex and alluring. Superb balance and wave after wave of flavour, with no one element dominant.

Finish: Ater showing more heather honey sweetness and hints of citrus, the smoke floats back for a last hurrah.

Winner of 2009 World whisky award for "Worlds best new release"
