“Organic” whisky? Fair enough. The Highland Harvest website notes that its whisky is adorned with the USDA Organic Seal of approval. For a glimpse into what this might mean, please have a look at the below video. 

 


Without further ado, let’s explore the character of this alleged organic whisky shall we? 

Nose: Sliced granny smith apples, green grapes and raisins with sparks of crushed cinnamon and sweet bakery spices. 


Taste: Honeyed oats, raisins and golden syrup with hints of maple – this whisky is smooth on the palate and very drinkable. There does not seem to be much complexity about this whisky, just sweet sipping pleasure without fireworks.  

Finish: Sweet oak driven sugars form and then slowly dissolve into mild toffee. 

This is a very decent whisky – approachable, drinkable and enjoyable.
