Highland Park 18 Year Old
70cl / 43% abv
A multi-award winning expression from Highland Park, aged for 18 years. A delightfully complex malt, with layers of sweetness and delicate peat, it's easy to see why this whisky won 'Best spirit in the World' in 2005.
Nose: Immediately noticeable is a rich oaky character which shows this is an older whisky. Behind that though there is the signature heather smoke that Highland Park is famous for.
Palate: Honey and dark fruits coat the palate, a beautifully rich sensation. Then like the tides that lap the Orkney Islands the peat gradually creeps in becoming more and more evident.
Finish: The finish is long but remarkably soft and rounded.
