GORDON & MACPHAIL HIGHLAND PARK 1995 22 YO 70 Cl
As the rest of the Exclusive range from G&M, this expression has been botted from a single cask. With an oily and saline profile, this 22 years old Highland Park opens to citrus, seaweed and jam notes.
|Nose||Coconuts and chocolate, but not Bounty bars: real, freshly cracked coconuts in their husks, dusted with cocoa powder. A touch of savoury earthiness and oaky spice is lightened by a touch of floral syrup: honeysuckle and heather honey.|
|Palate||Gentle smoke sits on the palate, stacked with layers of flavour. Spiced chocolate, stewed apples, barrel char, singed chocolate cake, hints of mint and a crown of butter and rich earthiness.|
|Finish||Earth and ash being, quickly replaced by stewed orchard fruit, chocolate and toasted cinnamon sticks.|
