I know we all tend to scoff at competitions and points awards and such---but when a rather impressive panel of spirits professionals is in such unanimity, it's worth paying taking note of.
The Ultimate Spirits Challenge, run by F. Paul Pacult and with such illustrious sniffers and sippers as Dale DeGroff, just posted their 2013 Ultimate Spirits Challenge results. It's a list worth purview.
And Highland Park Scotch emerged as a rather spectacular winner, with the first 100 point spirits score ever issued by the USC crew. In addition, all the other iterations of well-aged Highland Park gained Finalist status, scored well into the 90s all, and got the highest reccos. Considering they were in pretty stiff competition, that's impressive.
