Highland Park 12 Year Old boasts individuality and complexity, thanks in part to the use of Orcadian peat in the distillery floor maltings and the employment of ex-sherry casks for maturation. The nose is fragrant and floral, with hints of heather and some spice. Smooth and honeyed on the palate, with citrus fruits, malt, and distinctive tones of wood smoke in the warm, lengthy, slightly peaty finish.(Spring 2012) Reviewed by: Gavin Smith

Highland Park Scotch made with the same enduring belief and integrity, to the same exacting standards, as it has been since 1798. This accolade was no fluke, as we managed to repeat the feat in 2009; it was based on an unbroken tradition of whisky-making stretching back over 200 years. Highland Park is arguably the most respected single malt in the world. As everyone knows, respect has to be earned; our distilling tradition, attention to detail and honesty have combined to achieve just that.
