Highland Park 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky

  • $88.00

A very approachable style of single malt scotch whiskey, the Highland Park 12 year old has a deceptively complex palate ranging from smokey peat and savoury spices to a sweet maltiness. Great stuff!
Tasting Notes

Nose:
One of the world's most subtle and teasing noses: delicate wafts of smoke mingle effortlessly with sweet malt, a hint of oaky salt, apples, old polished leather and trademark heather.

Palate:
Intensely malty and fresh at first, and then a lingering smoky depth adds weight. Fabulous bitter-sweet balance which pans out on the sweet side with a gentle build-up of honey.

Finish:
Long, smoky with a heathers dryness and spice. Comment : This malt dies change shape slightly from vatting to vatting, with the smokiness, honey, malt and heather each having turns at domination. A 12 year old classic. Rating: 92
