Highland Park 1982 / 24 Year Old
70cl / 54.9%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Independent Bottler
A very different animal than the standard Highland Park 25yo, this displays bags of citrus (orange, grapefruit, lemon) on a medium-weight palate. A very interesting dram that makes up in vigour what it lacks in voluptuousness.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Tim F

Nose:  Seems like a 'young' nose for a malt of this age.  Medicated shampoo, hedgerow, leafiness, hint of sulphur, some sappy oak, emergent citrus.  Honeyed malt in the background.

Palate:  Sweet entry; then earthy, sooty, youngish malt appears, with big hint of tropical citrus:  Oranges, lemon and a lot of grapefruit.  Toasted cereal in the background; a honeyed quality persists.

Finish:  Warming, quite long.  Becomes astringent, lemony, hot and spicy, with the malt in the background.  The citrus slowly fades as a wet-paper oaky character comes through.

Comment: Shows a very differernt side to this distillery than the official 25yo expression.  Where the latter is full and rich, this is more of a medium-weight, with a much lighter touch.
