First introduced in 2003 as an exclusive, the 15 year old proved to be a hugely popular expression and is now available internationally.
With a remarkably complex nose, the 15 year old develops the rich, malty, yet subtly floral smokiness of the 12 year old further, with even an array of fresh, sweet aromas, including citrus fruits and flowers, sitting alongside a subtle smoke.

"The nosing passes find lightly toasted malt notes along with wood, sawdust, distant mint, and light caramel—not the most expressive Highland Park bouquet. The palate entry highlights the maltiness; at midpalate the taste becomes sweeter and honey like complementing the grain/malt base. Finishes assertively with the spirit underlining the honeyed sweetness."
