Highland park 12.

image

Highland park is a well followed distillery, the distillery is found at the top of Scotland on the island of Orkney. The distillery is one of the last remaining distilleries that still have a floor maltings, this is now a dying art due to the fact it is a lot of hard work, and it is cheaper to buy it in.
So the 12yo is the entry level of the cord range, bottled at 40%, it has a lovely golden tint.

Nose.. It has a lovely citrus scent rising out of the gentle smokey aroma, vanilla and honey with a lovely floral note sends your taste buds watering.

Palate.. Candied oranges, dates, honey gathered from moss, vanilla, even a little apple pops up.

Finish.. The finish is drying, medium but enjoyable.

Thoughts.. As the entry level you can not fault this whisky, it is a lovely smokey whisky, adored by many. This is one of those whiskys that you should find in most whisky cupboards, if it is not in yours then it should be..
