Highland Park 12 Year
|Bottle volume ml||700ml|
|Country of origin||Scotland|
DescriptionA single malt whiskey produced in the Highland Park distillery in the island Orkney, located in the island group in northern Scotland. This is a typical smoky Scottish whiskey, with strong flavors of peat and heather bush. The whiskey is aged for 12 years in barrels that in the past used for aging sherry, a process that gives it sweetness and a honey-like aroma.
Expert ReviewThe Highland Pack distillery started its operation at the end of the 18th century, and is one of the first distillery in Scotland that obtained a permit to manufacture whiskey. This is the most northern whiskey distillery in Scotland, and it makes a good use of the extreme weather conditions on the island in order to produce unique and top-quality single malts. A common mistake is the attribution of the quote said by Michael Jackson, the famous beer and whiskey critic, about the Highland Park – "the greatest all-rounder in the world of malt whisky", in his book Malt Whiskey Companion – to the deceased famous pop singer.

First time trying this, and it is very easy to drink. Smooth at first sip and easy to drink neat. Has a great peaty after taste that kicks in after you sip.
