Highland Park 18 is one of the most highly-rated single malt scotch whiskies in the world, and is revered by some prominent critics as the best spirit in the world regardless of category. It’s a subtle, Island-style scotch, distilled on Orkney with an understated peaty character, and more than earns its price tag. Highland Park 18 has become something of a legend, and every scotch drinker should give it a try if they have the chance.

“Entry is the finest, most complete, most complex, most satisfying of any whiskey in the world; the midpalate soars to ridiculous heights on the wings of seamlessly melded oak, spirit, and grain; a masterpiece of precision, ideal maturation, and subtle grandeur in the mouth. Finishes with finess, grace, and maritime power. One of a kind. The world’s greatest distilled spirit at the present time. Buy whatever you can find.” - F. Paul Pacault (Spirit Journal, 2007)
