Whisky Reviews for Highland Park 12-year-old
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.22 points
- It is just a previous bottling of the 12er, but still significantly better than the current standard bottling. Compared to the 40% but still a corner better.
Light meadow grass, oranges, vanilla, forest honey, a hint of citrus, subtle subtle smoke in the background. Cherries, orange peel, apricots, in the background a touch of oak.
Strawberry, well integrated smoke, a noticeable spiciness, cherries. Oily and velvety in the mouth, orange jelly, star anise, coffee, white pepper.
Swinging in the mouth for a longer time (20s +) causes the oak to come to the fore more and more.
The spice and a touch of sweetness remains, there is a brief bitterness on, but again vanishes. Medium-length finish.
- What a nice whisky this is! You can smell a long time here and discover new things, but at the same time it is so irresistible that it is almost impossible not to take a drink right away. A nice "old school" whisky.
