Highland Park 21 Year Old70cl / 47.5%
- Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
A 2012 re-release of Highland Park 21 back at its old strength of 47.5% after a few years of languishing at a lower strength due to stock shortages. This has been much sought after in the travel retail sector and it's good to see it back on our shelves again. Absolutely terrific stuff.

Class MagazineAppearance: Clear, golden amber with a slight green tinge.
Aroma: Sooty seaweed with a touch of linseed oil and appealing lightly smoked sappy wood, chocolate profiterole and faint orange zest aromas.
Taste: Generous, slightly sweet, smoky, buttery palate - invigorated by a spray of sweet orange oils and rich dark chocolate.
Aftertaste: Delicately smoked cedar, cigar box finish with hints of hazelnut.

Wow, this a great dram. The nose is sweet with hints of sherry, mouth feel is Sublime creamy and oily and robust, finish is long, sweet with bit of smoke and oak. 92/100, definite try and buy.
Stunning dram! Just finished a bottle that I got from the duty free and the level of maturation on this one is phenomenal, which clearly grants this dram its smooth, complex and refined characteristics. Huge development compared to the 12 YO expression. Very approachable in the sense that it is easily drinkable even at the strength of 47.5% ABV. Unlike the other reviewer, I don't think that this dram is expensive or overpriced; HP 21 YO, in fact, is worth every penny.
great whisky, tried at the TWE whisky show in 2011, smooth with wonderfull aromas and great taste, but too expensive when you can get an HP indi 20-21 Y for 50-65... and some exellent bottles of Lagsvulin or Talisker for 50-65 as well...if it was 70-75 i would consider buying it, but too pricy now
