Member Ratings and Notes
Sweet, smokey, and decent enough.  Sound familiar?  It is.  Definitely tastes like a Highland Park -- but not a particularly remarkable one -- with almonds, some sherry, and a tinge of sulfur.  The finish is really long, but it's also very hot, even adjusting for the ABV.  Water helps, but doesn't cure.  I hate to disrespect Hi-Time's choice here, but... you coulda done better, guys.  Grape Vine Market's 15-year single cask is/was way better, and much cheaper.  Next time Highland Park offers this program, I'll guide you through the cask samples, 'kay?
