I've always loved the highland park range, and I've had the Highland Park 18 on many occasions. Finally have one in front of me to review.
Nose: Some good sherry and thick honey notes, sticky stewed fruits and some dried apple, toffee, some smooth notes of peat and campfire cinder smoke, some sea sprey and slight floral notes.
Palate: starts out quite dry and oak like but becomes very juicy, leads off with it's sherry oak influence, Lovely sweet notes of honey and honeycomb, Slightly salty with notes of the sea then leading into some peat, smoke from a good campfire.
Finish: trails of with a very smooth taste of peat and smoke, slightly fruity still and sweet notes of thick fresh honey.
This is my favourite general standard range whisky from any distillery. It is truly great stuff. In a way it has every note of scotch (sherry, slaty, honey, floral, peaty ect) all in perfect balance. Still by favourite general bottle.
