Whisky furries - furs who enjoy the water of life

Last night, I got around to trying the most expensive (£8.49) of the 5 cl miniatures I'd brought back from Scotland last month: Highland Park 18-year-old. I was mildly intimidated by this, given its price, but it was actually very nice indeed. I'm not good enough to detect the myriad complexities that the expert tasters mention, but it did live up to the "toffee" note mentioned on the bottle, if perhaps more like honey to my mind. It's certainly sweeter than many whiskies. Rich, too, but not overpoweringly so. A bit of peaty smokiness, but again not overpoweringly so. Very nice indeed, though perhaps not enough nicer than miniatures half its price for me to buy it that often.

Ooh, that sounds very nice. I'll have to keep it in mind — if I see a miniature of it for sale somewhere, I'll be sure to pick it up.
