Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Clean fruit and crisp barley – very bright and polished – then fragrant notes of banana and honeysuckle along with buttered toast and honey, and fresher notes of green apple, grass and melon.
Palate: Again, clean, crisp and fruity on the palate, then the smoke starts to appear, adding a rich layer of depth, mingling beautifully with cereal and toasty notes. Water does not help this whisky; I don’t think it needs it.
Finish: Soft notes of honey-drenched toast and brioche.
Comment: Such a fruity whisky; brighter and more elegant than almost any other Highland Park I’ve tried. ‘Ice’ is an appropriate name…
Producer's Tasting Notes
Colour: Naturally radiant and vivid in colour; glacial, mirror-like brightness.
Nose: Resplendent aromas of cool, fresh pineapple and ripe mango sorbet come to life in this celebration of glacial character. Silvery shards of smoke give way to the frosty kick of root ginger.
Palate: Like the Ice Giants themselves, the palate is powerful yet mellifluous. In true Highland Park style, the combination of an argent, misty peat smoke is intertwined with pearly iridescent vanilla seeds and overtones of molten orris root.
Finish: Beautifully balanced, the creamy, rich, oily finish snowballs into long lingering woodiness and dry, feverish spices, providing a scintillating and harmonious whisky to savour.
