Highland Park & Bowmore
A blended malt from Douglas Laing, the Double Barrel range is a fantastic selection of blended malt whiskies with some very interesting combinations. This is a blend of Highland Park (known for its heathery, malty and coastal flavours) and Bowmore (a moderately peated, smoky and coastal Islay malt).
An Excellent Dram
I have both Bowmore 12 and Highland Park 12 and love them both..so I knew I would love this..and I was correct. I thoroughly enjoyed this scotch and is one of my favorites. I even add a little Bowmore to this dram to add another layer of smoke.

Nose: Gentle peat, honey and heather
Palate: Vanilla spice kicks in first followed by the Bowmore smoke
Finish: Decent length, dry finish with a hint of honey
This is an interesting and entertaining whisky. Beautifully balanced.
