- After some first stings in the nose some tropical fruits. Passion fruit. A dampy place on an tropical island. Almost no peat or smoke. A blast of fruits in your mouth. A real highlight. Some slight vanilla in the aftertaste. Really nice.
a very fresh nose, very much on sea air, slightly honeyed, nuts, faint smoke, green bananas, vanilla. moss and earthy notes too.. hints of mandarins. water adds some malty notes, caramel and danish pastry. There´s also a mineralic side to it. quite complex.
also on the palate this is extremely fresh, repeating the nose more or less with more weight on nuts and malty flavours. coastal flavours too especially when diluted. A very nice development.
very long, more on the coastal side now, with a little smoke. very clean and satisfying.
These notes are an amalgamation from two sample tastings, taken 4 months apart.
N: A mature yet super-vibrant HP with sugar-pumped raisins & cranberry [read those healthy food packets carefully], yet also with a subtle tropical & sugary-sweet, malty, lactose-fungal bung cloth side. A super refill snifter.
T: Wasn’t HP once regarded as the ideal all-rounder? Water brings out a broad spectrum of flavours, namely bready/malty/ > salty < lactose-fungal, the savoury sugary=malty-sweetness from the nose & now palate heavily countered with a bitter citrus note.
F: Another short, bitter metallic & malty finish.
C: A 'big’ HP [check that abv after 25 years], which for £115, was keenly snapped up by queuing fans & flippers.
Scores a B-
