Highland Park 21
Cask Type: N/A

Palate: Pepper, ginger, light smoke, raisin, stewed fruits
Finish: Medium+, ginger, cocoa, light smoke, orange peel, syrupy
Quite a step up from the standard 18, perhaps the higher ABV really helped out here. The nose is very rounded, and rather complex, nice mixture of fruit, faint smoke, and malt. Once I drank it, I was surprised by how spicy this was, followed by stewed fruits and raisin notes. The finish was somewhat long, with some cocoa notes and orange peel showing up, really rounded and syrupy. Well made, spicy single malt.
