The expression that started it all for Highland Park. First introduced in 1979, the 12 year old is at the very heart of our core range and demonstrates rich, well balanced malty tones, with the subtle floral smoke which makes Highland Park such a distinctive single malt whisky.
The 12 Year old exhibits aromas of Heather-honey sweetness and peaty smokiness. On the palate, it has a full malt delivery and a rounded smoky sweetness. The finish is sweet and lingering with heathery notes and subtle smoke.

"The aromatic profile is assertive yet welcoming, sweetish yet cereal dry, and oaky yet floral and a touch briny; the quintessential 12-year-old malt bouquet. In the mouth, the integrated flavors come in waves of toasted walnut, dark caramel, toasted marshmallow and barely perceptible seaweed."
