Many experts rate 21 Year Old Highland Park as one of the best examples from this popular distillery. Originally created exclusively for global travel retail and duty free markets, this whisky was named Best Single Malt of the Year at the World Whisky Awards 2009. Released in October 2007, Highland Park 21 is a full-flavoured, powerful, sweet single malt with a rich smoky finish.
Nose: Sweet sherry with a hint of balsamic, wrapped around a toffee centre.
Palate: Well-structured sweetness; aniseed balls and muscovado sugar with some smoke and apple crumble.
Finish: Spicy raisins with the aniseed lingering for a drawn out, exotic note.
Overall: A lovely dram that shows off the best elements of this very popular distillery.
