Highland Park, Cask Strength Edition, 56 %

Review #317
This is bottled for the Swedish “Systembolaget” and comes in a 35 cl bottle. It is very gentle on the nose considering the high ABV. Some light lemon and sweet vanilla. Not much is going on… It seems very young.

Umff! Power, citrus, dirt, light peat and salty vanilla in the taste. The sweetness really comes forward in the finish, giving you burned caramel and crème brulee. It is a fantastic transition from the taste to the finish! Two different expressions, but they complement each other great.

What it may be lacking in the smell, it makes up for in the taste! Lots of power, so you can easily try with water, and that really makes a difference. For me, it opened up for loads of lemons for example. I will give this 85/100 (20/22/22/21).
