Highland Park 8 Year Old Gordon & Macphail Single Malt Whisky 750ml
We've dropped the price again on what the Malt Advocate named as the best value of 2010. There's only one thing you need to say about this bargain-priced dram from the Isle of Orkney's finest producer Highland Park - you really get your money's worth of whisky. The straw colored spirit is soft, elegantly sweet and gentle on the entry. It gives way to notes of dried fruits and peat smoke that mingles with natural oils. It has all the grace of the 12 year, despite its younger age, and is one of the most easygoing whiskies we've tasted all year. Every staff member who has tried it has reserved at least one bottle for themselves, so you're going to have to compete with them. Undoubtedly a great bottle for yourself and so generally pleasing that it would make a great gift for any whisky lover.
