Is Highland Park Ice Worth Your Cold Cash?
Fire Edition, so this appears to be another series.
Highland Park Ice Edition, 17 years old, 53.9% ($300)
The nose is very nice, malty with light peat notes. The palate opens with sweet honey malt notes followed by some light peat. The finish is dry and peppery.
This is a nicely composed and well balanced malt. Tasting notes really don't do it justice because the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It's highly drinkable and the dry finish leaves you wanting another sip. This is the type of balanced malt that Highland Park can do so well. It reminds me of some of their older releases that I really loved. The only downside is the price, but hey, did I mention the mountain shaped box?
Thanks to Highland Park for the sample.
