Description

Highland Park 18 Bottling Note: 
A superb 18 year old from the Highland Park distillery and a winner of a Gold Medal at the 2005 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Tasting Notes: 
Nose: A profusion of ripe floral notes and fresh blossom with a delectable fruit salad. Notes of honeyed exotic fruits with a little botrytis.
Palate: Creamy and full with fruit conserves and espresso. A creaminess with cinnamon and allspice. Notes of toffee with thick black forest honey with a touch more citrus.
Finish: Long and well sugared with a herbal edge.
Wine Enthusiast 96 points – 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. – P.P.

Ultimate Spirits Challenge 97 points – With layers of musky spice and almonds, the nose of this single malt is inviting. Flavors of tobacco, leather, and vanilla perfectly complement the peat flavors to create a beautifully rounded scotch that will stick in your memory long after the spicy finish has finally dissipated..March/2017
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 98 points – (UB Collection,Finalist,Tried & True Award)- Brilliant burnt orange/ copper color. Majestic aroma offers sea air, malt, saltine cracker, coffee bean, light peatiness/smokiness, pork rind fragrances that are integrated. Taste highlights the maltiness and beaniness wrapped in a toffee-like flavor that lasts deep into the dry finish. Top rank maritime malt. Elegant, swank..April/2016
Malt Advocate 94 points – 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.
