Take your time to appreciate the nose of Highland Park 12YO and you will discover the characteristic honey sweetness followed by fruit – maybe pineapple, apple or pear. On the palate it is drying and leaves a gentle smoky feeling and a flavour that just keeps on going. When you taste Highland Park 12YO, the front of the tongue should tingle. After 2-3 secons the mouth should dry. Then 3-4 seconds after that you should have a gentle smoky aftertaste.
