Highland Park Earl Haakon

Country: Scotland
Region: Highlands
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 54.9%
Score: 94 points

This is the third and final edition in Highland Park’s Magnus Series, and is essentially a cask-strength version of the Highland Park 18 with a few tweaks. The nose has notes of fudge, ginger, lemon zest, blackberries, and a hint of lemon oil. The taste is intense and spicy with campfire smoke, ginger, vanilla, and a touch of fudge. The finish is long and spicy with ginger and touches of caramel and vanilla for balance. Excellent!
