Highland 19 yo, Chapter 7, 56,2 %

Review #427
From Chapter 7’s series “A Whisky Anthology” comes this 19 yo single malt from an unknown Highland distillery. It is from two Sherry butts and only 1130 bottles were made. Vanilla and marzipan at first in the smell. Slightly floral and citrusy with loads of white fruits and crisp apple pie. Not much oak influence considering the 19 years though.

Strong alcohol and chocolate in the taste. Then some light citrus, sweet vanilla, dark red berries and oak. Just a little hint of tickling tannins in the finish and some great light balanced oak.

A fine dram, but not the “Sherry bomb” I maybe expected here. On the other hand, there is a lot of things going on in this dram if you give it some time and water, so that was very interesting to experience. I will give this 84/100 (20/21/21/22).
