Highland Park 17 Year Old - The Dark Reviews

Great whisky!!! It is what the 18 years old "viking pride" should have tasted like, but unfortunately it has become a disgrace in recent years. This 17 years old is what Highland Park is really all about... too bad they care more about marketing these days than whisky

£190 for a 17 y/o

Like a very nice overpriced whisky - with extra sherry finish and smokiness. At £190 it is 'a steal' - you decide who is robbing who.

Great Stuff!

Like having a dram of Mac 18 Sherry Cask with a little dash of peat/smoke infusion. As Mac 18 is my benchmark, this is not to be missed. I tasted it head to head against Mac 18 Sherry Cask and Highland Park 18 Viking Pride. So much better than the Viking Pride (which I did not feel was very good) and more interesting and complex than the Mac 18. Score a bottle if you can!

Bought this on a bit of an impulse in the Flash Sales, but very glad I did. The notes are spot on, though I'd add honey and icing sugar. Wonderful depth of flavours which stay perfectly balanced as it develops and gradually fades. Wonderful!

Something Magic

Not sure what I can say about this incredible Whisky, there is something almost magic about the depth of flavours. Not to be missed

I get some honey on the nose as well as cinnamon and pine. Flavor is extremely full - sweet with a hint of smokiness. Liked this much better than the 18 Viking Pride.
