Highland Park Ambassador's Choice 10 year old, 46%
Price: $90 ● Issue: Fall 2015 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
Originally exclusive to the Swedish market, this expression was selected by Highland Park's Danish brand ambassador Martin Markvardsen. Matured in a combination of 70% bourbon barrels and 30% oloroso sherry casks. Waxy and malty on the early nose, with fresh earth, damp moss, vanilla, and honey. Gentle peat on the palate, more earthy notes; herbal, with lime and salt. The finish is quite short, showing apricots, slight peatiness, allspice.
