Description

The first proprietary bottling of Highland Park single malt Scotch whisky was as a 12 year old in 1979. It remains the core expression of the Highland Park range and is a smooth, balanced single malt, with a rich full flavour and a gentle smokey finish.

Appearance: Glowing amber Nose: Heather-honey sweetness; peaty smokiness Palate: Rounded smoky sweetness; full malt delivery Finish: Teasing, heathery, subtle smoke. Delicious

Highland Park 12 Year Old boasts individuality and complexity, thanks in part to the use of Orcadian peat in the distillery floor maltings and the employment of ex-sherry casks for maturation. The nose is fragrant and floral, with hints of heather and some spice. Smooth and honeyed on the palate, with citrus fruits, malt, and distinctive tones of wood smoke in the warm, lengthy, slightly peaty finish. (Spring 2012) Reviewed by: Gavin Smith(UB Collection,Finalist,Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Golden yellow appearance. Elegant aromas include nut paste, almond, sea air, light peat smoke, baked banana, leather. Taste profile features more grain than found in the bouquet. Integrated, harmonious finish is a model of perfection.The aromatic profile is assertive yet welcoming, sweetish yet cereal dry, and oaky yet floral and a touch briny; the quintessential 12-year-old malt bouquet. In the mouth, the integrated flavors come in waves of toasted walnut, dark caramel, toasted marshmallow and barely perceptible seaweed. — P.P. (3/1/2008) — 96-100
