Insider knowledge: Highland Park 12 Year Old 1996 - Provenance (Douglas Laing) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Highland Park 12 Year Old 1996 - Provenance (Douglas Laing) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: On apples, pears and hints of blackcurrant. Thoroughly enticing with peppery spices, almost mulled.
