Highland Park 12 year old is my go to single malt. It is one of the spirits that I always keep a bottle on hand (along with Grant's or Teacher's as a blend, Havana Club 7 year old rum, and Iceberg Vodka).
The Highland Park exhibits such balance. It is a little bit of everything. My personal taste runs away from the intensely smoky salty things like Laphroaig or the lighter malts like Glenfiddich. Highland Park is just right
