"This fun whisky gives you a glimpse of what Highland Park was up to before its classic teen years. The new make’s peaty influence smacks with citrus fruit peel at their peak with a touch of the sea. In the mouth, smoke and grapefruit zest is still king but sweet honey, agave, and vanilla are at hand. The consistent smoke and citrus guide the unhurried finish. This is a respectable Highland Park prequel to the complex timeless classics. "
