The 2017 relaunch of one of our all-time favourites, this has to be one of the most consistently excellent malt whiskies of the past 10 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. Unfailingly excellent, especially after a good meal.
Pacult wrote: '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.'Tasting Notes (2)
- Stewed Fruit
Tasting Notes by Gavin D Smith for Whisky Advocate
Introduced to the Highland Park portfolio in 1997. Gentle peat, soft toffee, floral notes, and honey on the beautifully fragrant nose. Superbly balanced on the velvety palate, with brittle toffee, stewed fruits, peat honey, and a hint of coffee. Smoke and more toffee and mingle in the long, elegant finish.
Producer's Tasting Notes
Natural colour, burnished gold, clear and bright.
Rich, mature oak, top note of aromatic smoke.
Rich, full flavour; honey and peat.
Soft, round and long
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.

Sad to see a few reviews stating there was no complexity as this doesnt fall under the preference category. HP 18 is is simply one of the best single malts ever produced. Smooth, complex, notes of rich cherry, vanilla and bitter chocolate. Strong spicy oak finish. The only complaint is the price point but limited availability goes that way so if you have the money its definetly worth grabbing a bottle if you see one.
Too strong, spicy and heavy .. I didnt like it at all . It was not easy to drink .
Glengoyne 18 isn't a patch on this. The HP 18 is excellent but I am drinking the previous bottling. Don't know what this new one is like.
No, it's not better than the Talisker 18. This Highland Park 18 is just a bit too dry and woody to be sublime.
Rather good, but is it better than Talisker 18 or Glenfarclas 21? At £106, just too expensive for an 18 year old. Glengoyne 18 arriving tomorrow, nearly £30 cheaper and superb!!
