There was a time when Highland Park 12 year was my go to dram. Now, with the fancy bottle and lackluster elixir it holds, HP is an unfortunate shadow of its former self. The bottle changed, as did the recipe. It was never broken gents, why attempt to fix it? And the price has skyrocketed, likely due to demands from overseas. Nonetheless, I would not pay $20 for this new version. If you return to the original product, a $40 price tag is conceivable.

This is such a good one! Tastes delicious especially with blending cocktails.

My favorite scotch. A little smoky. A little peaty. The balance of that plus the sweetness underneath it all keeps me coming back to this whisky.
Nicely balanced and flavorful. Not my first choice for good scotch but definitely something I'll grab when if a mood strikes

Not what it used to be. Be careful of the price on this one. You shouldn’t pay more than $40 for it.
