Highland Park G&M

An 8 year old Highland Park, bottled by Gordon and MacPhail for the MacPhail's collection. It matured in Sherry butts and bourbon barrels. Orkney whisky ahoy!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Toasted barley, slightly tart mango and vanilla.

Palate A creamy dram, rich with red apples, nuts and a whiff of smoke.

Finish Rather short.

Overall Classic Highland Park. We wouldn't say no.

Reviews for Highland Park 8 Year Old - The MacPhail's Collection (Gordon & MacPhail)
Smells ripe mango and light smoky, banana on the tail end and caramel. Taste is ripe fruit, black pepper, smoky peaty character and it fades to a resilient black pepper. Damn. Stone fruit and the sherry shines here. It's fantastic.

An excellent dram for the price!
A very nice "young" peated whisky I don't taste the sherry mentioned in the description but still an excellent dram. But if you're looking for the highland park 12 flavor look elsewhere. This is closer to Ardbeg 10 or Lagavulin 8.

Excellent dram for the ordinary day
I can't find the smoke, but the nose is peppery and vibrant. The palate is a little bit harsh, but no different from what can be expected - the price tag taken into consideration. The finish is long and lingering on the tongue, although the harsh palate sticks as well on the back of the mouth. Overall a good dram for the money.

A very affordable and approachable HP
This HP is not amazingly complex but offers great value for money for a mid week dram. Touches of smoke, green fruit and honey all with a bit of saltiness to it.

Not my style.
Not my style too smoky, taste like BBQ ribs.

Good stuff...
I picked up this little gem for $26.00 dollars and at 43% ABV! At that price it is a steal. It's fresh, creamy, fruity, some apple aromas, a little salt, mango, oak, a hint of smoke, sweet, with a quick finish. A great everyday dram. I'd pick up another bottle without a doubt.

Good Value for Money
A very affordable and affable dram. A good example of a young Highland Park carrying a fair bit of that trademark smoke. A good alternative to the 12 in a very different way, this carries more spice, vanilla and benefits from the extra 3% vol.
