If it were not for the ridiculous price, I would like to have this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In between I might consider another sip or two. I am no big fan of Highland Park, but this… After warming her a bit the nose and palate are just beautiful. I wish Highland Park would make more of this, for a normal price.
Thanks to Werner for the last drops of his sample…
