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.
Distiller's Tasting Notes for Highland Park 12 Year Old Whisky
- Appearance: Glowing amber
- Nose: Heather-honey sweetness; peaty smokiness
- Palate: Rounded smoky sweetness; full malt delivery
- Finish: Teasing, heathery, subtle smoke. Delicious
Take your time to appreciate the nose of Highland Park 12 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 flavour that just keeps on going.
