Many experts rate 21-year-old Highland Park as one of the best examples from this popular distillery. Originally created exclusively for global travel retail and duty free markets, this whisky was named Best Single Malt of the Year at the World Whisky Awards 2009. Released in October 2007, Highland Park 21 is a full-flavoured, powerful, sweet single malt with a rich smoky finish.
Nose: Sweet sherry with a hint of balsamic, wrapped around a toffee centre.
Palate: Well-structured sweetness; aniseed balls and muscovado sugar with some smoke and apple crumble.
Finish: Spicy raisins with the aniseed lingering for a drawn out, exotic note.
Overall: A lovely dram that shows off the best elements of this very popular distillery.

Tried this and the HP18. This one is clearly better; more well rounded with added complexity and depth.Sweet, spice and with a wiff of smoke.94/100

Highland Park continues their great line-up with their 21 y.o. This very bold yet very balanced whisky is one of my favorite daily drinkers.

I tasted this next to the 18yo with a friend and both seemed to prefer the 18. It wasn't that this one was bad, just that it didn't bring anything to the table that would've justified the price difference.

This is my favourite whisky ever, It has a fantastic nose,..toffee, cooked apple, molasses. The taste has more of the same with a gentle peat, some subtle mint and smoke. The aftertaste has more of it but a bit of tobacco.It is just splendid.Well worth the price

I've always been a big Islay fan. Had many Highlands and others but always come back to that Islay peatiness...then having purchased a bottle of Bunnahabain Toiteach recently I decided to get a small 3cl sample of Highland Park 21. It was so spectacularly good that I ordered the full size bottle and at £120 I think I got a bargain! In fact I would say it was the finest whisky I've ever had.Beautifully smooth and slightly sweet 'highlandy' flavour, off set by subtle but noticeable smoke/peat. It's the balance of the whole thing that is so special in my opinion.

Nope nope nope.This is way worse than both the 18yr and the 30yr old HP.Taste like a white board pen.

For me, this is the finest single malt I am yet to try. Strong, smoky and sweet, the balance is perfect. Has a strong powerful finish, full of caramel tones and a hint of raisins. Has to be tried!

Note: I tasted the new 47.5%AbV version.Where I am from, this sells for just under $300 a bottle. It's funny to talk about value when discussing $300 whisky but I can't help it. This is simply one of my favourite single malts of all time. Apples, pears, spearmint, and subtle sweet smoke on the nose are the first clue that this is serious stuff. On the palate there are similar notes with more heather and spices but it is the silky harmony of this whisky that turns our head. Plenty going on but nothing in particular dominates the others. A seamless whisky you could taste a dozen times and still find new reasons to love it. I found very little dilution suited this best. If you can even begin to rationalize it, bite the bullet and buy it.

Had a glass of this next to a glass of HP 18 at a tasting event and the four people in my group all thought the 18 was overall a better experience. Maybe there are better batches? It's not that there was anything wrong or off about the 21 but the 18 just trounced it.

Just had my taste of this wonderful liquid in a HP-tasting in Finland. Very interesting in every dimension, overall close to perfect. Superb in the HP 12-25YO range. This is my favourite whisky so far and can't wait to get my hands on a bottle of this awesomeness.

i picked this up duty free as a treat. kinda dull. Smokey and a little fruit. Very 2 dimensional. Maybe I got a dud bottle? I thought the 18 year old much more lively.

Had this last year in a miniature, was blown away by it, probably one of the best malts I've had full stop, glad to see HP have took this onboard and switched from 40% - 47.5% well done guys.

Seems to be a real new release !! It is much better than the 40% Vol.version with less smoke but very powerful and not that sweet like the 25 year old. I had them both to compare.Really great dram !!!!George / Germany
