It is. A very good price for 12yo Highland Park.

Any idea of the sort of thing your friend likes? I enjoy it, it's got good flavour. Little bit smoky and sweet, but not overpoweringly so. It's a good step up from entry level malts like Glenfiddich/Glenlivet if you're starting out too, IMO of course.

If they're a whisky fan in general, they'll probably appreciate it.

This would be a safe bet then. If nothing else, Highland Park produce quality whisky.

Here's Ralphy's review if you want a look youtube.com/wat…Izg
Looking for a different whiskey for my old man this xmas, his faveourtie is Glenfiddich, last year I bought him Jack Daniels for a change, and he enjoyed it, asking for advice from any whiskey drinkers, would he like this ? I know whiskey connoisseurs can be picky, so expert advice needed please.

Thanks

Whisky is subjective and everyone likes something different, but this is a good choice with broad appeal. If he enjoyed JD, this is miles beyond that in terms of flavour.

I will get a bottle, was wondering because JD is £15 on offer at sainsbury's but wanted to get him to try something new, and £23 is not that much more if he will enjoy it.
Thank you Evy

Glad I can help. To be honest, JD goes up and down in price throughout the year on occassion, this stuff doesn't really.

This is another option, it's a bourbon so along similar lines to JD, but superior (IMO). Also in Tesco for around the £22 mark.

An excellent quality scotch for very little cost.
Agreed, that everyone's opinion will vary.
Sure I paid £26 just last week for this in Tesco. Never mind.

If you were considering a bourbon, rather than a Scotch, could I suggest Makers Mark. If you can get access to Costco, they are doing a gift set for just under £23. It includes a 70cl bottle, a glass and an ice ball mould.
