"The hallmark of Highland Park production, an all-pervading obsession with quality and attention to detail, can be discerned in the distinctive aromatic, full-bodied floral sweetness of the whisky. The glory of Highland Park lies in its remarkable balance; this is as evident in the 1971 as in all other expressions." - Max McFarlane
Colour: Golden Amber.
Nose: Rich, vibrant and extremely well balanced. Fruit cake with raisins, cherry and a hint of almond, fruity sherry notes with a touch of caramel, faint spicy smokiness, with hints of black tea.
Palate: Wonderfully long strong feel, chocolate, mango, marzipan and cloves are discovered as the spirit opens up.
Finish: Smooth, long and lingering, mouth-watering, spicy with a rich plum aftertaste.
