I have done my own HP Vertical tonight. First the 12, then the 18 and now for the 21. I was dubious before I'd ever tried Highland Park as I had heard mixed reviews on the12. Not to fear, I love it and the 18 was wonderful. The 21 takes it on a bit to the next level.

The nose gives orange peel, grass, malt, cereal, and a dusty smoke. The palate offers caramel, it is thick and creamy, salt, orange, apple, peat, oak, slightly smokey and spices sultanas. The finish is long, spices, pepper, and aniseed. It has a drying quality not found in the 12 or 18.

I could drink a lot of this very easily. It is not quite as easy drinking as the 18 but that's because it's bigger and better.

@rigmorole That's a real shame. Mind you, if you can get the 18 it's not a million miles away and much more reasonably priced. Maybe if Scotland vote for independence later this year they might stick export restrictions on and the UK might be in the same boat. Lol.
