Highland Park 18 Offical Tasting Notes

Appearance: Natural colour; burnished gold, clear and bright
Nose: Rich, mature oak; top note of aromatic smoke
Palate: Rich, full flavour; honey and peat
Finish: Soft, round and long

The nose of Highland Park 18 Year Old displays characteristic toffee sweetness and an almond nuttiness reminiscent of marzipan. The finish is a prolonged, full, smokey aftertaste.

Highland Park 18 was awarded the ultimate accolade in 2005 and again in 2009, when US spirits writer F. Paul Pacult named it “Best Spirit in the World”. He states; “After 25 years' experience, it fits my profile of what makes a perfect whisky, which is to say it's totally in harmony, there are no rough edges and everything is melded together brilliantly.”

    Tasting Note by The Master of Malt
    The nose is a profusion of ripe floral notes and fresh blossom with a delectable fruit salad. Notes of honeyed exotic fruits with a little botrytis. The palate is creamy and full with fruit conserves and espresso. A creaminess with cinnamon and allspice. Notes of toffee with thick black forest honey with a touch more citrus. The finish is long and well sugared with a herbal edge.

    Tasting Notes By Jim Murray
    Nose: An empty honey jar which once held peaty embers. An enormous nose which seems to improve with each bottle I sample, though the characteristic salted butter is always present. Fabulous.
    Palate: Beautifully sweet: even sweeter than the 12 Years Old with peat on the back of the palate. Beautifully chewy, oily and substantial.
    Finish: Still peaty and now a little oaky. Cocoa and toffee cream compexity.
    Comment: This has to be my favourite Highland Park of them all, and each new bottle I taste (this was my sixth sample) seems to underline the overall class and consistency of this distillery. Brilliant.

    Tasting Notes By Michael Jackson
    Nose: Warm, notably flowery. Heather-honey, fresh oak, sap, peat, smoky fragrance. Very aromatic and appetising.
    Palate: Remarkably smooth, firm, rounded. Lightly salty. Leafy (vine leaves?), pine nuts. Lots of flavour development: nuts, honey, cinnamon, dryish ginger.
    Finish: Spicy, very dry, oaky, smoky, hot.
    Comment: If I smoked I would have a cigar with this one.
