Re: Highland Park 12 questions
I got a HP 12 one month ago - mine is good, kind of heavy on the black peat. I try to appreciate that though, as northern harshness. There is sherry, but is turns a tiny bit rubbery - i think they may not be using the highest grade sherry casks at HP, since they need to many.
It drinkable, but somehow it really has a much darker body than expected.
I like it though - I get the "heather" behind the sherry, with underneath it all this dark, volcanic smoke. Huge range of flavours.
