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.
