One of our all-time favourites, this has to be one of the most consistently excellent malt whiskies of the last ten years. Showered with awards and praise from all quarters, it was named as 'Best Spirit in the World' by F. Paul Pacult of the Spirit Journal in 2005. Unfailingly excellent, especially after a good meal. 'Best Spirit in the World' - Spirit Journal listing the world's best 100 distilled spirits 2005. "After 25 years' experience, it fits my profile of what makes a perfect whisky, which is to say it's totally in harmony, there are no rough edges and everything is melded together brilliantly." Paul Pacult, whisky expert, 2005 Gold Medal: San Francisco World Spirits Competition, 2005

Comments: Highland Park 18 Year Old is an exceptionally fine whisky that builds on the world-class reputation already enjoyed by the 12 Year Old.
All the Orcadian hallmarks of Highland Park are here - the smokiness, the peat, the heather-honey - plus it has gained a glorious richness and spiciness through its longer cask maturation.
Its elegance and smoothness make the 18 year old a delight to the malt whisky connoisseur.

It doesn't get any better than this. I pity those who go through life without experiencing the HP 18 year old.
