Highland Park Viking Honour 12 year old

The nose on this is salty and fruity, with some seaweed, a hint of rubber and a prick of alcohol even at 43% ABV.    The taste is rich with toffee, burnt coffee, caramel at first then some more acrid camp fire notes and along with bitter fruit peels and spices.  The finish is gentle hum of heat and peppermint along with some smokiness.  At 43% ABV it can take a drop of water and still hold up, but it doesn't need it.  Overall a delicious expression from one of my favourite distilleries.

    Hakushu 12 year old

    Japan’s peaty distillery produced this rather good 12 year old. The nose is smoky with ripe bananas. Sweet and fresh. The taste is also quite fresh and spicy at first then with a little time some caramel and pine notes come through. Some more peat in the finish along with black pepper and toffee. Solid, if not spectacular.
