Highland Park 34 year old 1971 vintage (Cask #8363), 53%

Price: $325 Issue: Fall 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Rummy molasses and toffee sweetness intertwine with roasted nuts and bright, juicy fruit. Suggestions of fig, lavender, leather, and tobacco throughout, with a hint of peat and polished oak on the finish. Not quite as refined as the Highland Park 18 year old, but it makes up for this with its dynamic personality. A delicious ultra-mature, sherry cask-aged whisky. (A Binny's Beverage Depot exclusive.)
