15 year old single malt from Orkney's Highland Park Distillery, which was re-released in 2016. Dig in to waves of coastal smoke and Sherried peels, with a good core of barley to follow it up.
Nose: Orange and lemon peels, joined by sea breeze and vanilla custard.
Palate: Smoke begins light and coastal, develops throughout with a hint of well-toasted malt. Sultanas and redcurrants sit beneath it.
Finish: Long-lasting smoky elements.

This was my favorite whisky until I discovered Lagavulin. I became obsessed with it and since its discontinuation it's been a rare treasure. For those who aren't into Islays or peated whiskies this one is incredible and smokey yet not overpowering, for those that are this one will likely underwhelm. The caveat that I've both read about and have found to be true from personal experience is that it does vary greatly from bottle to bottle. I've had several bottles and can attest to that. That being said, I've compared it to the 18yo as well as the 21yo only once or twice and felt that the 15 was better. (on a side not, I think the 12yo is better than their NAS Dark Origins.) What's most incredible is it's ability to wet then dry the palate while gentle smoke rolls in and sweet buttered bread bounces.

A bit smoky and quite sweet, it is flowery on the palate. I'm not sure if it's worth the jump from the 12. It is a little smoother. But 25.00 or so smoother? I think no. I bought this a few month's ago and am a about 1/2 through the bottle. It opened up quite a bit. It is delicious, don't get me wrong. I'll stick with the HP 12 until their marketing associates come back to Earth. 3.5 due to the price.
