On the nose you will get a typical Highland Park nose with aromas of honey, vanilla, soft spices, but also red forrest berries and some sherry. Hints of smoke, mild oak and sandalwood.
Same as the nose, soft mouthfeel, mild pepper, pinch of salt, heather honey, dried fruits (banana), and sugar sweetness hints of lemon peal and nutmeg
Actually more black pepper and peat on the finish. A medium long finish, fruity with vanilla and light touch of wood. Great balance between the vanilla and the honey.
Peatier than expected, but with all smoke wrapped up in fruit and vanilla. Supremely well-balanced, with a long and leafy finish. Unfortunately it wasn't bottled at cask strength.
