Highland Park 12 Year Old remains one of the gold- standard malts for other distillery bottlings to aspire to. With a delicious sweetness (heather-honey is their preferred description) and a warming, silky mouthfeel, this is a whisky that never lets you down. "The greatest all-rounder in the world of malt whisky". Michael Jackson, Michael Jackson's Malt Whisky CompanionTasting Notes (3)
Highland Park 12 Year Old Viking Honour
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Salted lemons, a whiff of charcoal smoke, crunchy green apples, tropical fruit chews, unripe mango, beeswax, honey, dusty wood and fruity dark chocolate – maybe chocolate limes? It develops in the glass, picking up more fruit and slowly cutting the citrus notes.
Starts off with syrup sweetness, quickly moving on to sour and creamy wood, with more tropical chews, pineapple and smoked orange rind.
Smoky wood, malt syrup, green pine cones and woody spice.
Tasting Notes by Gavin D Smith for Whisky Advocate
Highland Park 12 Year Old boasts individuality and complexity, thanks in part to the use of Orcadian peat in the distillery floor maltings and the employment of ex-sherry casks for maturation. The nose is fragrant and floral, with hints of heather and some spice. Smooth and honeyed on the palate, with citrus fruits, malt, and distinctive tones of wood smoke in the warm, lengthy, slightly peaty finish.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Heather-honey sweetness; peaty smokiness.
Rounded smoky sweetness, full malt delivery.
Teasing, heathery, delicious.

Has its own certain charm,despite only 40% abv.Nice flavours,possibly better with no added water.Pity its not at least 43% and non chill filtered..ho hum!
Very dominant smoke flavor. Nothing else.
There's enough smoke in this whisky to keep it interesting, it doesn't however overpower it, in fact it compliments the fantastic sweetness of this superb single malt, Heather honey I believe is there description, I can't rate this whisky enough, absolutely superb, 10 out of 10
Nice tasting and an easy drinking dram, but a bit too thin for my liking?
Wonderful nose, very inviting. However the palate and the finish left something to be desired - all I can recall is a bitterness that did not subside into anything more palatable. Gave it away after a couple of drinks. Shame, the old version gets such high praise I was expecting more. (The bottle I tried was the US version, 43% ABV.)
