  5. Thermidor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The nose is a little shy but inviting and quite deep. Some sherry and barky delicately smoky peatiness. Neat it's already very tasty, like a shorter, stockier bro to the 18yo, definitely more complex than the 12. Water brings out some seaside aromas, oiliness and rock salt, but also more floral notes while the sherry ones tone down. I like this almost as much as Earl Magnus.

    What a great HP, without a doubt one of the better recent releases. Sold initially for around 100 EUR. But no longer available at that price. Rather triple that. Oh, well.
    • Nose
      The nose is round and sweet, very creamy like butter, on heather, orangettes, honey, vanilla, discrete smoke and sugared cappuccino. There is also a hint of sulphur, but this is (strange as it may sound) an added value here. The influence of the first fill sherry cask is unmistakable. The ABV made me wary for an alcohol bomb, but I should not have worried. It is very accessible and inviting. Adding some water makes it sweeter still with more lime.
    • Taste
      On the palate, however, the ABV makes itself be known. Wow! Hoo-haa! Wonderfully mouthcoating and powerful on the attack. Creamy like coffee licqueur, a whole rack of herbs, honey, lemon, coconut and strawberry jam. Yep, that is right. And a good helping of the sweet Orkney peat. It takes water very well, that brings out dried fruits.
    • Finish
      The finish is long on liquorice and herbs.

    Had the chance to try this today, fantastic! Went to let the owner of this liquor store try the Balvenie tun 1401 #3 and he pulled this out. He said it was given him to try from a friend from Scotland. I Liked it and haven`t tried any of these before, well done!

  8. Lafroy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Smoke, strong sherry notes, glues, acetone, cherries in white chocolate, dark grapes, horse saddle and leather, very nice dryness to tongue, dark chocolate and something burning, possibly fried dark sweet cherries.
    • Taste
      A lot of citrus notes, sourness and freshness, hints of white pepper, some dryness, a lot of smoke, cherries, chili, strong hot sensation to tongue, something burning, possible pinewood.
    • Finish
      Rather short, spicy, dry, smoky with hints of tobacco and cherry.
