Highland Park 1990 vintage 15 year old (Cask #10146), 53.6%

Price: $78 Issue: Winter 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

The darkest and most decadent of the three 15 year olds here. Notes of molasses, demerara rum, apricot, and dates. More subtle notes of mixed nuts, sap, tobacco, and fig, with just a hint of Moroccan spice and leather. Surprisingly complex for a whisky this young, and the most intriguing of the younger expressions reviewed here. (Bottled for Beltramo's Fine Wines & Spirits)
