Highland Park Magnus
Single Malt — Islands, Scotland
Reviewed September 20, 2020 (edited December 4, 2020)
I’ll be honest, this is the first highland park I have tried. I have heard great things about them. Let’s see what it’s about. The nose is bright and a little sweet with citrus (orange and some lemon), hint of dried apricot, light malt and peat. The palate is sweet and juicy with citrus, light apple, vanilla, malt, some pear, and lightly toasted almonds and a hint of some jalapeño pepper spice on the back of the palate. The finish has lingering vanilla and malt. The spiciness on the back of the palate continues until the end of a medium finish. A nice refreshing whiskey with some interesting aromas, I just wish it was a higher abv.
