Highland Park 12 Year Old, Orkney, Scotland

Appearance: Glowing amber

Nose: Heather-honey sweetness; peaty smokiness

Palate: Rounded smoky sweetness; full malt delivery

Finish: Teasing, heathery, subtle smoke. Delicious


  “A gorgeous, honeyed combination of heather root, sweet spices, fruit peel/marmalade and a drift of peat smoke. A seductive dram that mixes butter tablet, dried herbs and heather-honey, all bound together by that wispy peat smoke.” Handbook of Whisky, Dave Broom

 “Outstanding, frighteningly near-perfect Orcadian malt.” Jim Murray, Malt Advocate

 “Succulent, with smoky dryness, heather-honey sweetness, and maltiness. 90/100” Michael Jackson’s Malt Whisky Companion 5th Edition 2004

 “The 12-year-old is already a phenomenal, potent dram, and the stuff just generally gets better and better as it gets older. Sweet, smoky, smooth and opulent, filled to bursting with spicy fruits and a long, hazily luxuriant and powerful finish, this is a magnificent whisky.” Raw Spirit, Iain Banks

 “Few malts are as complete in flavour as this remarkable Orcadian spirit. The holy trinity of malt, peat and cask come together in heathery harmony.” Andrew Jefford
