Deep autumnal russet

There's fruity black cherry notes in there, along with fresh pipe tobacco, a touch of cinnamon, and heather peat — the Orkney one that they use is more than 4000 years old!

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate has plenty of spice, as well as sultanas and candied citrus. Nutty almond notes and a touch of peat round it all up nicely.

— Amazing

— Dark brown - rich mahogany in a glass. A warning - not your everyday HP (I love love love HP products). The nose I found to be totally sherry and chocolate forward like an Oloroso cask was used. A hint of smoke comes in the background that supercharges the chocolate - one of the more unusual flavor combos that really surprised me how good it was. Stewed prunes, tobacco leaves, and a hint of menthol round out the noes. Palate was tingly, not hot. Sherry is dominant with chocolate flowing behind and filling the mouth. Finish is tongue-tingling, chocolate covered cherries smoked with cherrywood. Coating, medium mouthfeel. Absolutely fantastic.

— OK, I am going to give Flaviar props. I always love Highland Park, but I wasn’t sure about it $200.12-year-old. But I have to admit, this is a big one. Not quite “The Dark” but really nice. My first 45 ML I started with just a couple of drops of water, tasty but too hot. Added a few more brought out a little more but still a bit too big. Still a few more and it was right in the sweet spot.

Elizabeth,
Enjoyable but hard to do anything with and have to be in the mood for it. Not a casual drink to pick up.

Frederick,
While I am a sherry fan, this bottle was a bit heavier on the sherry than I had hoped. Still enjoyable, but took a bit longer to drink and needed more dilution (ice) than I usually prefer in my whisky.

William,
I’m new to Scotch and pretty much only drink The Balvenie (love you The Balvenie). But, I’m not quite sure what my Scotch style is yet. But this, this is really, really spectacular. Once I try a few more, I’ll try to revisit this one to see if it’s my style, which seems likely given how happy I am right now.
