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?
