Nose
Intense mix of dried fruits and spices, heather and honey laced with a little lemon. The smoke is here too.
Palate
Hints of coconut and vanilla mix with heather and peat. Big mouthcoating but with a silkiness to it.
Finish
Long and smoky.
Comment
It is almost like they have put the usual 12 Years Old on steroids. Great stuff.

Nose
Big plum and prune notes,broody smoke and some blood orange.
Palate
A big,bold whisky,with rich plum and berries and a coarse peat carpet. Lots of conflicts and contrasts. A roller coaster experience.
Finish
Coats the mouth and lingers,with fruit, pepper and peat.
Comment
Another worthy addition to the Highland Park range. Only on limited release but well worth seeking out.
