Highland park 12

This is the entry level offering from the well followed Highland park, many whisky lovers have started their journey with this malt, bottled at 40% it makes a perfect everyday dram.


Nose.. It starts of very fresh and fruity, lots of sweet notes like honey and vanilla, typical smokiness that this distillery is known for.

Palate.. It is very fresh, lots of fresh and dried fruits fighting to be at the front of the que. There is a typical smokey flavour tangling with oaky notes.

Finish.. The finish is fresh, spicy and has a lovely drying feeling.

Thoughts.. You have to remember it is the entry level whisky in the core range, there is no wonder it has a good following. The 12 shows plenty of maturity but not over complex.. Enjoy it for what it is .. It will make you happy.
