Highland Park 16yo Tattoo

Highland Park's Twisted Tattoo combines whisky aged in Spanish Rioja wine seasoned casks with whisky aged in first-fill bourbon casks - a wonderful combination indeed! Inspiration for this one came from the Viking legend of the Midgard Serpent, which got itself twisted around the world to bite its own tail. You can even see said serpent on the bottle's label, designed by tattoo artist Colin Dale.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Reviews for Highland Park 16 Year Old Twisted Tattoo
Tastes the past
Breath in, think of a string orchestra, imagine the smell of all those old but faithfully used instruments: This is how this whiskey smells. It smells old-fashioned. It smells authentic. It smells historic. Now turn on your favourite orchestral and take a sip...

Easy to drink!
Was well into this bottle before I spotted it was 46.7%. Very drinkable, good next level whisky or entry level. Almost middle of the tasting spectrum but that is the good think!

My first highland park experience so far
It was a discover for me as this whisky done something new with my taste. Fresh fruity nose with summer berries and a hint of smoke. On palate more berries, more smoke, but not too much to kill everything else. The way tastes change each other and comeback is like a boat floating. Fantastic!!! Never experienced anything like that. And a long lasting cream and smoke. Mmmmmm..... Thank you Highland Park!!!!

Let it open up a bit
Lots of oak and dry tannins on finish. Give it a few drops of water and a few minutes to open up. My first impression was not great but it is growing on me. A malt that rewards patience.

Good value for $100
Very much like Full Volume. A solid whisky. Appreciate the age statement and cask information they provided. Completely non chill filtered would be better. If you like HP...you'll like this whisky.

Very nice but issues with price
Was given a sample of this recently and my first impressions, as I had labored through a rather uninspired Highland Park 12, was that this is much better than the 12. The flavor profile isn't massively different from the 12 but everything is more subtle, more complex and, most importantly, more flavorsome. It was a lot better than what I was expecting however, for the price, I just didn't see the value to opted against it. I think it is over-valued but the whisky itself is actually very nice.

Humble apologies
Correction to last review... It is obviously a 16 year old, not a NAS

Looks good! Tastes Fine
Very pleasant dram. Tastes quite young and fresh. In the glass there is no discernable hint of the rioja but it does add a gentle fruitiness on the finish.
I just wish they would spend a bit less on packaging and reduce the price to reflect the fact this is another NAS
