Highland Park 8 (Gordon & MacPhail 2007/2016) Review

This is an 8 year Highland Park from G&M that was matured in refill bourbon casks and bottled at 59.2% ABV.

Nose: Heavy banana taffy with guava, a briny malt, smoky oak, and black cherry. Haven’t encountered such a fruity Highland Park before.

Palate: Big banana taffy continues with leather, apples, black pepper, and a relatively dry oak.

Finish: Banana lingers on with red hots candies.

Rating: 85/100 – I was slightly skeptical given the young age, but this young HP is quite nice.

Value for the money: This can be found in UK online shops for around $55 which is a great value.
