About the brand
With a history dating back over 200 years, Orkney-based Highland Park is one of the most respected single malts in the world. The distillery works to the same exacting and with the same methods as it has had since its birth in 1798. The distillery found its feet fully in the 1870s, when it fell under the ownership of first William Stuart [who owned Miltonduff] and then from 1885 with his business partner James Grant (previously the manager of The Glenlivet) who took full control in 1895. Highland Distillers (who had shares in R&B) took full control in 1937 and Highland Park is now part of the Edrington Group. Highland Park is one of only a handful of distilleries that still retains a traditional malting floor, working each batch of malt by hand, in what is an extremely labor intensive process. To malt their barley, it is steeped it in the mineral rich water from the Crantit spring, before transferred to the malting floor to slowly germinate. When it is ready, the barley is then placed in kilns where the aromatic peating process begins. Highland Park’s bourbon barrels are not routinely filled. Traditional oak casks seasoned with dry Oloroso sherry are used; which the distillery claims help contribute to the “distinctive richness” in the resulting spirit. The whisky then goes through a process called Harmonisation. Distillers often see this practice as an unnecessary expense, yet Highland Park consider it an essential part of their traditional process. Each individual batch of whisky is drawn together from a variety of cask types, contributing an array of flavours. This harmonisation takes up to six months and gives the whisky improved consistency, complexity and balance. However, ‘unnecessary’ the traditional processes and additional harmonisation may seem, the resulting whisky appears to gain great benefit. Highland Park has been named ‘The Best Spirit in the World’ no less than three times, and has also gained the accolades of: World’s Best Single Malt for its 21 years old and the Ultimate Spirit in 2013 for the 25 year old.

Scrumptiously smooth. Maybe unreasonably unpretentious for my palette. Vanilla and caramel approach the completion is delicate and lingers. Extraordinary with apple fresh!

One of the more intricate whiskies Ive attempted. Sherry and caramel on the button with apple strip or pear on the sense of taste. Delightful long and zesty completion. A genuine whisky experience.

Faintly peated contrasted with the refinery's more youthful partners however in no way shape or form a smooth measure. It flaunts a full body hearty wood notes (stogie box) and blend of dried and new tropical natural product. Pleasantly offset by and large with an outstandingly long completion.

In this way this will be a double audit since I opened a container of this for my New Takes video over on @Generously_Pauls YouTube channel Spruce Measures. The explanation this will be a double audit is on the grounds that Good country Park discharged two distinct forms of this whisky: the first 47.5% variant and a decreased ABV 40% adaptation when their 21yo stocks dwindled in 2010 and 2011. I opened the 40% container for the video however I likewise had an open jug of the 47.5% from a couple of months back. Initial a little history about the discharges: it was initially propelled for movement retail in 2007 and in 2009 it won Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whisky Grants. All things considered normally request soar and left HP scrambling to meet it-so they did the legitimate thing: the mixed barrels down to 40% to extend the whisky and help meet the flood. They returned it to unique quality in 2012 and made it a center range discharge for the UK showcase before ceasing it totally in 2016-as they revealed the Viking re-topic and flood the market with an ever increasing number of NAS whisky. Tisk-tisk. Onto the surveys: HP 21 47.5%‚‚"‚"‚"‚"‚"‚" Appearance: profound gold with sleek slight legs and substantial drops. I accept this has some additional shading however Im practically certain its non-chill separated as a result of the higher ABV. Nose: weathered limited smoke and tropical natural products butterscotch and toffee and some energetic citrus make it pop more on the tongue (the ABV helps here also) Sense of taste: medium smokiness with succulent sherry barrel notes overwhelming tropical and plantation organic products. The oak is more observable in the first form than the 40%. The higher evidence includes a distinct lift in the warmth factor however I still wouldnt include water. The mouth feel is steady and tasty not thick yet it despite everything sticks to all that it contacts. Finish: medium-length with a waiting pleasantness and pepper chomp. The smoke is a lot more extravagant here and truly stays nearby. Generally speaking: this is a drinkers whisky. The smoke is wherever with the exception of on the button. Its profound and rich with a decent hit of influence for a multi decade old malt. 4.25 stars. HP 21 40%‚"‚"‚"‚"‚"‚"- Appearance: its dim gold (proof of included shading I think). Watery with fat legs and huge amounts of medium-sized drops pursue the legs down into the base of the glass. Nose: the smoke is truly quieted here clearly so is the warmth its fringe powerless. Plantation organic products on the button though the 47.5% form was totally tropical. Caramel and toffee cause this to appear to be more similar to a treat than a whisky. Sense of taste: sherry and more sherry show up from the bounce theres a rich chocolate smoke that saturates the whole taste (which is an or more over the higher verification stuff) this one is smoother and creamier as well. Theres zero warmth and nothing waiting after you devour the fluid. Finish: short nearly non-existent. Which is the place this measure endures. A speedy glimmer of sherry and smoke and afterward its gone. Theres no warmth no container notes and nothing abandoned. Its somewhat tragic IMO. Generally: the sense of taste conveys greater multifaceted nature over the higher ABV yet the completion is demolished by all the additional water to mix it down in quality. Its not a terrible whisky truth be told its likewise very great. 3.75-4 stars. Last considerations: both of these whiskies are a lovely case of very much matured Good country Park. The two of them do not have the uber unpredictability of the multi year old and the complexity of the 25 yet they still feature HPs great malt and sherry barrel development. I needed to pay over $250 for the two jugs at closeout throughout the most recent year or something like that so dont expect an arrangement on either bottle-theyve since a long time ago vanished from racks and order a powerful sticker price. On the off chance that youd like to get a jug Id state watch the Scottish sale houses and offer on them when theres a closeout with different contains for gets. I have seen a couple go for $180-200 when theres a respite in the offering wars. Give close consideration to the ABV sign and go more earnestly for the 47.5% adaptation. That way you can mix it down if need be. All things considered if it's not too much trouble look at my video uncorking and smaller than expected audit on YouTube: Smart Measures. Perhaps tell a companion and like or buy in. Roots for and thanks perusing this wordy double survey."
