Wine Enthusiast 96 points - 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. - P.P. (3/1/2008) - 96-100.March/2008
Ultimate Spirits Challenge 96 points - Gentle hints of earthy peat and wild valley flowers combine for an incredibly complex and layered nose. None is lost on the palate which deftly oscillates between savory flavors of smoked meat and sweet tones of honeyed dates..March/2017
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - (UB Collection,Finalist,Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Golden yellow appearance. Elegant aromas include nut paste, almond, sea air, light peat smoke, baked banana, leather. Taste profile features more grain than found in the bouquet. Integrated, harmonious finish is a model of perfection..April/2016
Whisky Advocate 90 points - Made in the remote Orkney Islands, this whisky-which Highland Park recently dubbed “Viking Honour”-is meant to evoke the spirit of those rugged Norsemen of yore. Marketing patter aside, the Orcadian peat makes for a floral, perfumey nose with just a hint of smoke-perfect for toting along on a camping trip and sipping by a fire you built with your own two hands..July/2017
The first proprietary bottling of Highland Park single malt Scotch whisky was as a 12 year old in 1979. It remains the core expression of the Highland Park range and is a smooth, balanced single malt, with a rich full flavour and a gentle smokey finish.
