Highland Park 12 Year Old

Today I went with my family to a Mexican restaurant called Javier's and to drink I had two single malt whiskys, both on the rocks.

I liked the second (Bowmore) more than the first (Highland Park). But I was unable to describe their tastes.

Menu Description:
Highland Park 12 yr. smokey "garden on fire" sweetness, heathery, malty with a hint of sherry $11.

Highland Park 12 Year Old, 40% abv

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.

Appearance: Glowing amber
Nose: Heather-honey sweetness; peaty smokiness
Palate: Rounded smoky sweetness; full malt delivery
Finish: Teasing, heathery, subtle smoke. Delicious

Take your time to appreciate the nose of Highland Park 12 and you’ll discover the characteristic honey sweetness followed by fruit – maybe pineapple, apple or pear. On the palate it is drying and leaves a gentle smokey feeling and a flavour that just keeps on going.
