Highland Park 8 Year Old (The Macphails Collection)

Highland Park 8 Year Old (The Macphails Collection) Part of a wee selection of Highland Park whiskies this dram really is worth the money

This dram was one i tasted at Livingston Whisky Club we'd picked it up for a bargain price just to see how it was and we were all in agreement that it was actaully a damn nice dram. It shows it's age a little with some youthful sweet notes but that adds to it's character for me. You can pick up a bottle from The Whisky Exchange

 

initially a short sniff of malt and smoke then there's a hint of sweetness, very similar to the floral sweetness i get from new make, the smoke builds in the glass but doesn't overpower and is very much a passing whiff like driving past some old cottages, there's a sherried dried fruit note that rounds off the nose on this. It's definitely "young" but lovely.

lots of sweetness and sherried dried fruit, malt loaf and oak leaf with a gentle hint of smoke

sweet sherried fruit.
