Highland Park 18

Nose:  Oaky from its 18 years in barrels. Slight smokiness but not to harsh. Hints of pears and a slight creaminess.

Palate: A light smokiness, slight taste of the sea. Very enjoyable and easy drinking Island malt. Its not got the power of some of the Islay Malts but when you want a whisky that’s there for you after a hard day, I would say this is your man.

Finish: Bitter, oaky and a little dry.

Highland Park 18 is always going to be compared to Macallan 18. Both owned by the Edrington Group, both premium products for their distilleries and both huge worldwide brands.
