Jim Murray Whisky Bible 2017 - 96.5

Just a few more phenols than is normally found for a Highland Park of this age and that extra smoke does no harm at all. It would be ridiculous and beyond a cliché to expect heather honey… but there she blows, that understated sweet note that just creeps in above the acidic, anthracite bite and below the soothing citrus which lighten the entire picture; spot on delivery. The spices arrive early, but not before the tannin has already begun knocking on the door. Dominant though, is the gently salted malt which cushions all impacts with a velvet glove. Long, lightly smoked and with the gentlest fade of walnut cake accompanying Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee with the most apologetic inclusion of milk and a little dark liquorice on the side. For me 21 years was always the optimum age for Highland Park… and always, without exception, in an ex-bourbon cask. Or, at least non-sherry. With a stunning bottle like this, surely some kind of award winner this year, it is hard to argue.
