Highland Park Scotch Single Malt 12 Year

Highland Park Scotch Single Malt 12 Year

750ML        
Sku: 006088

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.

Warm aromas of golden raisins, sweet spice and smokey caramel. The flavors are richly concentrated with sweet caramel, smoked maple, and butter cookies giving way to gentle spiciness. The texture is suede and very smooth. A pleasure.

Dark gold, verging on amber, in color. An earthy, Oloroso sherry nose, with delicate wafts of smoke and leather. Honeyed heather notes show on the palate, with an intriguing herbacious quality. Malt, smoke and sherry build in the midpalate, while the finish is gently sweet with hints of leather and sherry. Spectacular.
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
