Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 51.5%
Why always only whisky, rum or cognac/armagnac? Or even mezcal/tequila? There’s much more around, and that’s refreshing – provide you sometimes manage to keep you distance. And carefully avoid that thing that just every Tom, Dick and Harry are making these days on this little planet, and that is called ‘gin’. You know, time-to-market, bankers, hipsters, start-ups, money, models, Ibiza
Further, Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky are located in Normandy, in the department of Orne. Not too sure whether some pears were involve here or not. Colour: straw. Nose: aaaah! Look, I’m not really a Calvados fan, but I am a fan of this bright, fruity and deep eau-de-vie that just reeks of plain cider, with even the fizzy side and these very fresh notes of citronella and mown lawn. Touches of butterscotch from some likely American oak – but I’m probably wrong. With water: cider and older apples everywhere. This one’s close to nature and was not unsanely ‘doctore’ with newish oak. Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky Distillery Bottling
Mouth (neat): wonderful spirit, all on cider and apples, with fantastic notes of old oak, old cellar, chardonnay (yes), and… old champagne! Really! With water: yes, works. Very fresh – but of course you have to like apples and cider. Finish: long but a tiny bit too bitter and soapy for me. Not something that’s unseen in Calvados, IMHO. Otherwise, very fine. Comments: some very fine spirit indeed, you’re almost feeling like you’re at the farm. It’s rustic spirit, and yet, there’s something pretty hype
