Highland Park 12 Yr Scotch 750ML
Highland Park made from the best barley malted over burning peat from the distillery-owned Hobbister Moor; merged with waters from our own source, the Cattie Maggie spring; and aged in casks for a minimum of twelve years that shape its rare and very distinctive character.
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.
