Highland Park 30 Years

Highland Park 30 Years 750ML          
Sku: 15697

Until the launch of the 40 year old, this was the flagship variant of the Highland Park range was first released in April 2005. By its very nature, this whisky is only available in limited quantities. It is, however, worth seeking out as the ultimate expression of the distillery’s character.

Tasting notes
Appearance: Natural colour; dark red golden, clear and bright Nose: Very rich, mature oak; chocolate; fudge Palate: Full, rich burst of flavour; soft honey; nutty toffee Finish: Rich, long and surprisingly sweet for its age

An exemplary Highland Park. There’s certainly plenty of sherry influence in this whisky and it is complementary. (About 2/3 of the whisky was aged on sherry casks, and a lot of these casks were second fill.) The whisky enjoys a delicious foundation of toffee, fruit (lemon, plum, blueberries) and dark chocolate. It continues to develop and evolve on the palate, with emerging notes of heather, nougat, lavender, delicate peat and complex dried spice (especially cinnamon and nutmeg) to balance the sweeter notes. The extra alcohol is also a bonus, providing a drying balance to the whisky’s sweetness. Whiskies like this one remind me why I fell in love with whisky in the first place.

Rich and nutty on the nose, there are aromas of smoked honey and a slightly floral perfume. Concentrated flavors on the palate are of cedar, clove, caramel and vanilla. The texture starts smooth and finishes with suede-like sweetness.
 Wine Enthusiast 96 points (May 2006)
The nose offers subtle aromas of unsweetened coconut, bacon fat, and dark toffee with additional toasty scents of apple crisp, dates and oak. The palate entry is rich and fresh; the midpalate features flavors of bacon fat, dark honey, fudge, and bitterswe — P.P. (4/1/2006) — 96-100

Wine maker notes
30 years in an oak cask makes this whisky a very complex beast. Firey copper red in colour, the Highland Park 30 year old has an incredibly deep floral nose of rich fruit and cocoa while the palate is rich and complex - toffee apples, light smoke and honey tones. It has a distinct moreish quality that encourages repeat sips - and drams.
