TASTING NOTE: ... This is one of the best Highland Park whiskies I have ever tasted ... It's lush, well-balanced, and very complex. Well-defined notes of toffee, candied fruit, and roasted nuts are accentuated by background honey, chocolate mousse, and smoke. Here's the icing on the cake: it's bottled at 47.5%, which really allows the flavors to shine ... Score - 93 (John Hansell, whiskyadvocate.com, Summer 2008) Price $ 399.95
