"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."

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.
