Highland Park matures this 15 year old whisky in ex-Oloroso sherry barrels crafted from American oak as opposed to the Spanish oak casks of the 12 and 18 year releases. The barrels are toasted instead of charred, yielding a unique flavor experience, especially when compared to the more common charred ex-bourbon barrel releases of competing distilleries.
Appearance: Bright gold with amber tones, medium legs.
Nose: Citrus, more lime than lemon or orange, light oak tones, sherry, light peat smoke.
Palate: Sweet vanilla, dry sherry, and citrus give way to peat smoke just before the finish. Medium-oily mouthfeel.
Finish: Rather quick finish with some saltiness on the very end. Lingering sherry aftertaste.
