. If I remember right, the newly-packaged 12yo is uncolored (and the 18 always was). Presumably the new 16, also.
I'm almost positive the old packaging of Highland Park 18y was colored. I'll have to take a closer look and make sure. But glad it isn't any longer!
No more puns about the packaging being coloured - but the old HP 18yo whisky was not coloured, got it, checked.
My 18y mini clearly states, in German, color added. I heard the German market must be told when color is added to whisky. Is this so Malt-Teaser? Or anyone else out there in Germany know about this?? I also have seen the normal sized 18y with the German written "color added". In fact, when I read a few years back how highly Jim Murray rated it, I wanted to get it, and when I did I saw color was added, which turned me off quite a bit. Unfortunately, the stuff is so damn good, it stopped bothering me. But I am really happy the new formula doesn't add color.
