Nose has smoke from good fireplace (burning pine), hints of bacon, lemons, oranges, honey. Palate is tasty and satisfying, moderately peated in the house style, mildly sweet, with honey and caramel, moderate citrus, and balanced smoke. Long finish is mainly dominated by pepper and lingering smoke, but it's that characteristic HP milder smoke. Overall this has echoes of a cask-strength version of Highland Park 18.  Though this doesn't have a whole lot going on in it, it's still a solid whisky.  B/B+

Aged Highland Park just works for me -- although admittedly this Park Avenue offering is not a superstar.  The combo of fruit and peat is well balanced, but it fails to acheive the "honey nut cheerios" effect I look for in my 20+ HP's.  Still, very solid.
