Top reviews for Highland Park The Dark 17 Year Old:

― The nose is smoky with hints of sherry and an alcohol burn. Dark chocolate and sherry start the complex parade of flavors with a little peat smoke to balance it out. The taste fades into a rich coffee finish that is long and satisfying. Perfect Autumn scotch!

― An expensive bottle (and beautifully packaged) that I gave to a client. He asked me how I liked it and I said, "Don't know, heard great things but never tried it." He said well then you're not leaving before we give it a go. He's now a client, and friend, for life. This is a must have for special occasions, or unti you just can't wait anymore!

― Absolutely love it. It's not a scotch I'd want to drink every day because the taste is so rich and dark, but it would be one reserved for special occasions.
