Highland Park 19 year old 1986 vintage, 53.8%

Price: $120 Issue: Summer 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Rich and viscous in texture. Sappy waxed fruit, maple syrup, and nougat. Becoming quite nutty with emerging notes of damp peat, dates, plum and blueberry. The sherry is fairly dominant and masks some of the whisky's subtleties. After dinner with a cigar, perhaps? (Bottled exclusively for Beltramo's.)
