  1. Lovespring scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    having high expectations I hoped that I wouldn'd be dissapointed and guess what. This HP even turned out to be better than I thought.

    In a blind tasting I would give this one at least 18 -20 years. Although the abv is 62,6% the alcohol on the nose is not dominating.

    On the palate it's so creamy and oily. This Cask is really of a high quality. Really fantastic.

  2. LDB scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    In the nose like an old Invergordon in a strong: liquid dessert! Rum pot, custard, and despite more than 60% nothing stings if you don't go too close to the glass while nosing.
    Clearly spicy and herbaceous, with fat and oily in the mouth.
    For only 12 years, the single cask is a really nice HP honey citrus mead with a few drops of water.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Had this one in a blind tasting. Did not expect this to be a HP, for it lacks the typical HP smoki- and peatiness. Earthy and red fruits dominate, with only in the finish some hints of smoke. But a very pleasant dram for sure.
    • Nose

      Full scent, ripe fruits, a lot of alcohol, prunes, raisins. Some earthy notes as well.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Strong, powerful, pepper. Dark red fruits, prunes, ripe fruits, and again some earthy notes.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Still pretty strong, now a little whiff of smoke passes along, with again some prunes and earthy notes. Middle long.

    In the nose like an old Invergordon in strong: liquid dessert! Rum pot, vanilla pudding, and despite more than 60% nothing stings if you don't go too close to the glass while nosing.
