Nose: Oak,Honey,Heathe,earthy smoke.a nose to die for. it's indeed an amazing combination. Palate: Rich, Honey,Heather , low intensity peat, Oak. rounded, balanced. perfect. Finish:long round, lingering and very warming.

this is indeed a classic which should be on the shelf of every malt aficionado. it's in my top 10 surely.

find me a person who doesnt liket this nectar and likes scotch. i havent met someone like that ,yet :)

If only this bottle cost less. I'd drink it every day. Some of the most amazing stuff on earth!

Galg: I'm not sure how much it costs in your neck of the woods, but here in Canada a bottle costs about $140.

(And worth every penny!)

In the US (at least the shops I go to) it's between $89-99; usually $99 though.

A great friend of mine recommended the HP 18 as his favorite whisky, so I boogied down to the local Italian grocery store which also sells great liquor and picked up a bottle for $82.

I gotta say, this stuff was "liquid Magic!" Smoooooth! And, like I've read, a little of everything in it and perfectly balanced.

I find it very hard to drink just ONE dram! I just bought the Highland Park 12 a couple of days ago for $40 and compared them.

My conclusion is that the 12 is great for everyday: the 18 for very special occasions....but, I'm finding that each DAY can be very special!
