Highland Park 18 Years Old Dumpy Bottle 43% NV
Serge Valentin (88)
Colour: vibrant gold (?)
Nose: wow! Again lots of flowers and honey, but with lots of added fruits like banana, pineapple, melon… Superb.Smells like a fruit salad with honey. Hints of wood and caramel, Really fantastic. What freshness! It smells almost like
a great Sauternes.
Mouth: oh yes, Highland Park is more like this. Creamy, nutty, fruity (mirabelle, quince jelly).
Lots of light toffee, cappuccino,
Bailey’s (or rather like an Alexander). Lots of strong oney (chestnut, fir). Keeps eveloping on lavender creme, crystallised oranges, dates… Superb, even if very smooth. Long finish, on candy sugar. Always a winner.
