A spectacular representation of the soul of Highland Park Single Malt.

Highland Park is the most northerly distillery in Scotland on the island of Orkney. Legend has it that it was founded by Whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson in the late 1700s and that he used his position as a church officer to conceal Whisky beneath the church pulpit. Don’t assume that “Highland Park” means their Whisky is made in the Highland style. In character, their spirit is closer to a midpoint between Lowland and Islay Single Malts. Perhaps the most famous Whisky connoisseur of all time — journalist Michael Jackson — called Highland Park, “The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky.”

There’s something special about twelve year old Single Malts. Don’t get us wrong, there are some amazing ten year olds and NAS Whiskies out there. But there is magic threshold at an even dozen years that we really like. Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old is the core Highland Park Single Malt with the flavor profile of sweetness and light peat smoke that it’s famous for with the smoothness that only time can bring. And it’s won more than thirty medals and competition honors itself, lending a ring of truth to its name.

Smoke and pepper was all i got. Mediocre at best. Not a good addition to the highland park line.

At the price point HP 12 cannot be beat. It really is the every night drink for me. The mix of smoke and toffee flavor is wonderful to me.

I haven't done many single malts I've have more blended scotch, but this was an amazing one it had its smokey hit but not too harsh and the honey did well to keep it smooth and gave it a nice calm sweetness to it.

Jasson,
A good dram, most notable (I think) for its finish - which is outstanding. Very expensive compared to other similar single-malts, though. Don't think I'll ever buy another bottle.
