Highland Park 1995

Country: Scotland

Region: Highlands

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Gordon & MacPhail

ABV: 57.2%

Score: 88 Points

Gordon & MacPhail combined three casks for this 2006 bottling of Highland Park, and the nose has notes of dried banana chips and orange peel, coconut, and vanilla with some hints of straw and dried grass. The taste is dry with a fruity taste that builds on the palate. Banana, coconut, and vanilla notes dominate, then fade to reveal orange peel and just a touch of toffee on the lingering finish. (2008)
