Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Robert,
Definitely peat on the nose. Nice amber color. Sweet taste of honey on first sip with a slight peat aftertaste. Adding a few drops of water really intensified both the aroma and taste. Nice burn to warm you up.

Aivan huippu hyvää!!
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Robert,
Liked it very much. I don't mind a little peat and did not feel this one was peaty at all. Certainly no iodine. Found it quite balanced with sweetness prominent and fruity notes. To me a rich scotch. Those I shared it with also were impressed, except one or two who I guess prefer true Speysides that have no hint of smoke whatsoever. Me, I like a little complexity.

Erin,
The smell is great, but too much bite

Regan,
If you love smoky, you'll love this. A little stronger smoke than we typically enjoy, but nice and smooth, otherwise.

Joseph,
Had a balanced peaty flavor that isn’t overpowering with honey notes. The finish was smooth and long with fruity flavors – to me, primarily raspberry and peach. – I enjoy the complexity and journey it brings to my palate. If you have a hard time appreciating this drink, you probably just don't like Scotch.

Nothing to right home about, but nothing to disparage

Sadie,
I’m new to scotch and it seemed odd to me at first because I typically have Rye or Bourbon but it’s growing on me. Great caramel and smoky flavor but not overboard
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Carlos,
I was expecting a more subtle taste! I found it bitter and cheap tasting!

Brenton,
Another success from Highland Park. They never disappoint me.

Casandra,
This is a wonderful strong Whisky. For me it starts with a light sweet flavor and finishes with a nice smoky flavor.

Jerome,
Very complex, take time to experience, a broad spectrum of flavors. One of my favorites.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Andrew,
Fairly sweet, couldn't really get the spiced fruitcake. Harsh ending.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Daniel,
This was almost undrinkable. Harsh on the throat, almost like it was more of a fuel than drinking whiskey.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Jerry,
Absolutely did not like this scotch. Not smooth or pleasant There are cheap blends that are much better than this scotch.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Joseph,
A solid peated single malt scotch. With a bit of ice taking the smoke off, it comes off well across the taste buds with just a hint of spicy. Reasonably priced for the quality offered. Would recommend as an option for moderate valued bar looking to have peat bottle available to offer.

Julie,
A bit too much peat taste for my liking.

Al,

Bill,
A very good HP w/ an age statement no less! I think it takes a hit because people are tired of the gimmicky marketing HP keeps employing

Michael,
A little too smoky for my tatse, but overall it had a great nose, coloring and taste.

Alexandra,
Woodsy and smooth

Gene,
I'm not a huge fan of peat smoke and have never bought a Highland Park for that very reason. However, I did enjoy this whiskey. Beyond the smoke there is actually a nicely complex dram that keeps inviting you back for another sip. For my taste buds, had it not been for the smoke I would have rated this a 7 instead of a 6, I'm sure other folks would rate it higher.

Spicyyyyyyyy!!!
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Michael,
Smooth and a relatively short light finish. For me the thing that held it back for me was the light peatiness.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Paul,
A good amount of smokiness with a sweet honey aftertaste. Nice.
Highland Park Viking Pride 18 Year Old
Damian,
Very smooth start with a subtle heat/smoke flavor then the Carmel’s and floral flavors take over, great long finish.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Richard,
I’m new to the scotch scene so my descriptors are not as refined. After a dram of the highland, it coats the mouth and tongue. (Oily feel as I have read). It has a nice malty fruit taste that ends with a taste as though you just enjoyed a smooth Cuban cigar. I will definitely be getting another bottle.

Joshua,
This was my first single malt scotch and though the smell was faint, I definitely was not prepared for the strong smokey flavor right off the bat. After a few sips and getting a helping of that smooth honey aftertaste, I was able to enjoy the overall experience.
Highland Park Magnus
Kenneth,
Peaty, band aid with faint matchstick smoke. Peppery spice. Minimal pineapple/fruit flavor. Would prefer more smoke and less peat.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Christopher,
A little thin. Smoke is nice and subtle but not very complex.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Rex,
Fruity on the nose. After taste of oak. Not too harsh on the tongue.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Quintino,
This is one of my go-to Scotches. Light peat, sweet honey and a smooth aftertaste. I give this to anyone of my friends that say they want to try a "peated" whiskey.
Highland Park Valkyrie
Alexandra,
A little spicy and oaky with a very subtle smokiness.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Kuotian,
This is a great whisky. It has a very distinct rich smell of sherry oak a lot like that of a McCallen 12. The taste is rich and sweet like honey. Full bodied and flavorful. I can smell a bit more smokyness by adding a bit more water, but it doesn't taste like it is peated as is. The after taste is savory and pleasant. This is not a whisky for people who like smokey or peated stuff. It is for people who want a McCallan with more flavor and depth. If McCallen 12 is that highschool sweetheart, this is she after 2 years of squatting session. A nice bottle overall.

Bryan,
Very Smokey but smooth it is a great pairing with my steak and potatoes

Delicious. Mostly smooth with a nice fruity smell.

Kevin,
This 12 year old whisky was light and smooth with a smokey flavor. Not a scotch fan but this is pretty nice! Grows on you overtime.

John,
I'm on the fence with this one. I love my Chevis for the reason it is smooth and doesn't have the heavy smokey taste. That being said my first savoring of the Highland Park I was reminded of the strong scotch aroma and was a little overwhelmed by it. The second night I decided to try again and after overlooking the aroma I was quite pleased with how smooth it was going down. I will have to sample it some more and I am looking forward to be able to get back home and try some other labels with my first tasting box that arrived after I left to go to work. captjlm.
