DETAILS

An old 50ml dumpy miniature of Highland Park 12 yo 1990s , Island Single Malt Whisky from Orkney in Scotland. Bottled in the early 1990’s at 40% abv.

FACTS

NOSE

Rich and complex, with many fruits and floral bouquet, heather honey, delicate sweetness of vanilla with caramelized nuts, gentle woody spices with malt and slightly smoke.

PALATE

Creamy and sweet, with heather honey again, some ripe fruits and citrus, liquorice, then peaty and malty, quite spicy with gentle smoke and sea salt notes in the end.

FINISH

Rather long finish length, lingering spiciness with honeyed nuts and peat smoke, finally, slightly bitter and lightly warm woody dryness.

OVERALL

Nice, well balanced old Highland Park, reflects the character of Orkney and rather is better than the current 12yo. The best part is nose.
