Highland Park 18 Year Old Isle of Orkney Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #620138 96-100 points Wine Enthusiast

 Opening aromas are of sea breeze, cigar smoke, oak and malted barley; air contact releases light caramel, fudge, cocoa bean, burnt candle wick and heather. Entry is the most complex of any whisky; midpalate soars on oak, spirit and grain tastes. The greatest distilled spirit of this generation. Buy whatever you can find. *Best Buy* (PP)  (11/2008)

94 points Whisky Advocate

 Introduced to the Highland Park portfolio in 1997. Gentle peat, soft toffee, floral notes, and honey on the beautifully fragrant nose. Superbly balanced on the velvety palate, with brittle toffee, stewed fruits, peat, honey, and a hint of coffee. Smoke and more toffee mingle in the long, elegant finish. (GS, Spring 2012)

K&L Notes

Highland Park 18 Year Old is an exceptionally fine whisky that builds on the world-class reputation already enjoyed by the 12 Year Old. All the Orcadian hallmarks of Highland Park are here--the smokiness, the peat, the heather-honey--plus it has gained a glorious richness and spiciness through its longer cask maturation. Its elegance and smoothness make the 18 Year Old a delight to the malt whisky connoisseur. One of F. Paul Paccult's Designated Top Scotch Whiskies (2007).

The nose gives up nutty, toffee, honeyed heather and baked bread aromas with a subdued smokiness. The smoke comes out more distinctly on the palate, balanced by full, sweet flavors of honey, caramel and spiced baked apple. This is a spirit that seems wild at first encounter, but is really surprisingly gentle at heart, with a sweet generous nature lurking behind the not entirely slick exterior. I should also note that the finish reverberates for a goodly span.
