Highland Park 18 Year Old

Top 10 Single Malt Scotch

Highland Park 18 Year Old combines toffee flavors with a lightly smoky finish and made GAYOT.com's Top 10 Single Malt Scotch list

Highland Park 18 Year Old
Orkney Islands

It’s hard to believe that Highland Park’s 18-year-old Single Malt was first released in 1997, as its great reputation belies its youth. It’s an instant classic, thanks to its balance of light toffee flavors and long, lightly smoky finish. On the nose you get honey, Sherry and peat coupled with almonds and light smoke, which makes it not just approachable but irresistible. It is simultaneously subtle and complex while allowing the consumer to enjoy a smooth and dynamic expression of the Orkney Islands’ most prized distillery. It finishes with heather and honey mixed with earth, dried fruit and nuts. Balance and brilliance are the memories this malt leaves dram after dreamy dram.

Price: $105
