    Characterful dram, lots of interesting woody aromas and magnificent body. Benefits from water.

  3. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Great one. Finish is rather short, but aroma and taste greatly compensate for that
    • Nose
      92 92
      Fresh-baked cookies, oatmeal cereal, strong honey flowers, light touch of sweet peat.
      On the second try - condense milk and honey sweetness with more prominent touch of sweet peat and herbs
    • Taste
      91 91
      Strong mix of heather and honey, with mild earthy peat character
      On the second try - sweet milky honey mixed with earthy HP peatiness
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium, light sweet peat and honey

  4. Kaleva scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Excellent single cask release, full-bodied, nicely sherried, balanced and tasty. Going well neat but some dilution might be a plus. Hard to find, especially for fair price.
    • Nose
      Sweet, candied, sherried, dried fruits, vanilla, honey, syrup
    • Taste
      Sweet, caramel, fruit jam, winter spices, liquorice, caramelized orange peel
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, nutty, caramelly

  5. Thermidor scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    On par with the other HP single casks for Finland: fun, enjoyable and more detailed than the regular 12 and 18yo OBs, but not stellar.
    • Nose
      Dry smoke, some faint buttery notes, some sherry, nut oil, and faint hazelnuts. A little bit of beer and honey. A bit of water makes it go quiet, and a bit more makes it decidedly worse: greasier, simpler, with some Sisu candy and fruitiness.
    • Taste
      Herbal liqueur, dry, nutty sherry, and a fair amount of peat. Round, good body neat, but water makes it again simpler, just like the nose.
    • Finish
      Faintly charred medium strength sherry note. Clinging and resinous. Some cigar leaves.
