This was supposed to be a mystery, but became an unmystery about half way through when the person holding the reveal sheet accidentally revealed the answer. So I give you, a half mystery. But a whole review. Math is weird in whiskey land.
Earthy, funky peat. Minearility, some BBQ. Really dirty earth. Sweet vanilla, caramel, toffee, honey. Some stewed fruits, thick syrupy strawberry. Really funky, in a good way.
Thick, syrupy sweet. Some pepper, honey, vanilla, stewed fruits. Earthy peat, some smoke, savory bbq. Faint iodine. Really aggressive peat for HP, but it blends with the wine notes very well.
Long, some heat, but complex. Earthy peat blended with syrupy stewed fruits.
This is Highland Park Odin. Post, you are a generous man. It is very good. Damn good. I like it a lot. I'd never spend $$ on this, so this is a real treat. Now to hunt my final Highland Park wish list bottle - a 15+ yr, cask strength, 100% first fill sherry or madeira. Its out there...probably not. Maybe? But I still want it.
