Delicious Take your time to appreciate the nose of Highland Park 12 Year Old and you'll discover the characteristic honey sweetness followed by fruit maybe pineapple, apple or pear. On the palate it is drying and leaves a gentle smokey feeling and a flavor that just keeps on going.
90 Points Whisky Advocate - 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.

|*Top 50 Spirits, 2011* Elegant, light and pretty. This amber spirit has a light, briny vanilla scent and a silky feel. A veil of smoke rises through the Scotch (but fades out fast), leaving behind a sweet nutty, vanilla finish.|
