Highland Park 10-year-old

Bought – Best of Whisky, Holland, 26th August 2014

81/100 – Malt Maniacs (average from 4 reviews)
80.88/100 – Whiskybase (average from 51 votes)

This 10yo is an original bottling from Highland Park distillery but impossible to find in the UK. So much so it doesn’t appear in the Whisky Bible, that’s how obscure it is! So I was delighted to find it when doing my first online shop abroad in Holland. Reviews suggest this isn’t earth-shatteringly brilliant whisky but a pleasant example of a young Highland Park. Who can grumble with that?!

A comment on Whiskybase suggests this bottle was only produced for the Dutch and Canadian markets. Another reviewer said they prefer it to the 12yo and 15yo versions, which only goes to make it more intriguing!

Here’s Horst Luening of Whisky.com with his review on You Tube (October 2016):
