96–100 pts. : March, 2008

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. Best Buy.

Elegant, light and pretty. This amber spirit has a light, briny vanilla scent and a silky feel. A veil of smoke rises through the Scotch (but fades out fast), leaving behind a sweet nutty, vanilla finish.

Highland Park 12 Year Old boasts individuality and complexity, thanks in part to the use of Orcadian peat in the distillery floor maltings and the employment of ex-sherry casks for maturation. The nose is fragrant and floral, with hints of heather and some spice. Smooth and honeyed on the palate, with citrus fruits, malt, and distinctive tones of wood smoke in the warm, lengthy, slightly peaty finish.

Amber appearance. Medium-bodied. Honey, heather, subtle peat. Rounded rich aromas reveal a smooth creamy texture in the mouth with rich woody flavors and a gentle peaty character in evidence through the finish. Veering towards the after dinner style.

The yellow/marigold color reminds me of an old vintage Montrachet; absolute clarity. The opening nosing passes detect moderate salinity against an aromatic backdrop of oak, toasted cereal grain, and dried flowers; another seven minutes of exposure to air reveal even deeper (is that possible?) aromatic profile that’s assertive yet welcoming, sweetish yet cereal dry, and oaky yet floral and a touch briny; the quintessential 12 year old malt bouquet. The palate entry is elegance itself as the integrated flavors great the taste buds in taste waves of toasted walnut, dark caramel, toasted marshmallow, and barely perceptible seaweed; the midpalate stage takes all of these flavors deeper and adds honey. If the miraculous Highland Park 18 Year Old wasn’t already my favorite distilled spirit of all time, this classic might well be.
