Distiller: Highland Park. ABV: 40%. Age: 16 years. Price: $120 (1L).
Highland Park has released a number of travel retail exclusives over the years, and as an HP collector I’m always on the hunt for them when traveling. I picked up this 16 year old awhile back before it was discontinued.
Citrus and light floral notes are on the nose. Subtle sherry sweetness and dried wood notes combine with light smoke on the palate. Its finish is somewhat short with faint sweetness and peat.
I’m glad I bought this bottle, though I prefer the 2001 vintage travel retail release over it.
Cheers! – JTR
