Highland Park 2005/2013 Gordon & MacPhail Cask Strength


Highland Park in natural presentation.

Testing / Tasting
(87 points)


Highland Park (in this link you can find my photo report from a visit to the distillery) has already appeared on the blog for example as the Loki or SMWS 4.151, which I really loved or the official release of 1998/2008.
Today I reached, as in the case of SMWS 4.151, for an independent bottler – Gordon & MacPhail. In this case we are dealing with a series of cask strength – 59.9% ABV and natural presentation. This is vintage 2005 bottled in 2013, which is relatively young. For its creation they used 1st fill bourbon barreles.

C: white wine;

N: at the beginning I have a clear high alcoholic strength, I need to give it some breathe, after a while a little perfumy, then classic, which is quite sweet, on a vanilla, caramel and toffee, I also have some coconut, peach syrup, dried apricots, over time, more and more apples, you can find here even a little of smoke;

S: tweaks on the tongue and warms up, but it shouldn’t be a surprise with 59.9% ABV, as I wade through it, once have a lot of bitterness, traces of wood, ginger, grapefruit, there are elements of peat and ash, after the addition of water I have sweeter accents of vanilla and honey, as well as fruits, peach syrup, orange peel, apples and more grapefruits;

F: long, dry with fruits, traces of peat and ash.

Score: 86.

Highland Park 2005/2013 Cask Strength from Gordon & MacPhail is a very interesting malt. It deserves a praise, of course for natural presentation.
