HP Bicentenary


I pulled this one out of the closet and while I always loved it, i had forgotten about it. This was put out by the distillers as a 21 year old bottled in 1998 to celebrate 200 years of distilling at Highland Park. What Michael Jackson said about it: Nose - Polished oak. Leather upholstery. Palate - Minty. Creamy. Freshly-peeled satsumas. Orange peels. Dark cherry flavours. Very bitter black chocolate. Astonishing complexity and length. Long development of drier flavours. Finish -
Violets. Lingering flowery, scented flavours. Comment - After that voluptuous dinner.
