Highland Park is a distillery that I have never paid much close attention to so unfortunately I do not know much about this bottle. Generally I find Highland Park whiskies to be nice but none particularly outstanding (I have tried the current 12, 15, 18, 25, 30 and the older style 12, 16 and 25 50.7%), my favorite being the old style 12 (sunset label) and the 25 50.7%. Is anyone able to give me any information on this bottling? I am particularly interested in the years that it was bottled, opinions on the quality of the whisky, and current value (I never sell whisky but do like to hold onto the more collectible ones for future drinking). This is a 1L bottle bottled at 43% and I paid NZ$100 for it (a little under 50 pounds).
Since I have compared heat to head with recent bottlings, I would not be able to give you more information about the flavour profile. I would suspect slightly sweeter, since the presence of the first fill bourbon casks is more present lately.
damnit rich, i was not mentioned in the HTH although mine was better as we had all 3 different bottlings of the HP12 along with HP18 dumpy HP30.
from what i recall, this has a nice sherry undertone to it.

...though still with great balance despite the sherried richness.
I can still recall (with much positively-tinged nostalgia) the issues of the 1980s, which sported a clear label appliqué and contained (perhaps) the finest 12-year old Highland Park distillate I've ever tasted.
