1st Fill European Sherry Casks
Holm Rd, Kirkwall KW15 1SU, Verenigd Koninkrijk
A smoky and malted barely nose with aromas of bright and fresh red fruits, apricot, mashed cereals, a touch of clove and spices.
Aromatic peat smoke and a powerful palate with lots of toasted vanilla and caramelized sugar. Deep flavors of nuts, honeydew. hints of sherry, cracked black pepper, cloves and oak shavings.
A swift and clean finish with lingering vanilla, smoke and malted barley.
A nice presentation from Highland Park. It gives you enough complexity to enjoy what's in your glass. But also its sips way too easy.
