  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    This is certainly nice stuff , chewy on the palate and tasty with it with a nice spicy finish but £125 for an 11 year is a bit excessive in my view.

    In this video Phil, from the youtube channel Whisky Wednesday, talks about this whisky in depth. Starting with a glass straight out of the bottle, nosing and tasting it and then slowly adding a little bit more water and telling us viewers what that water is doing with the whisky.

    Just a bit too heavy on the sherry influence for my taste

  9. Kaleva scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nice single-cask expression from HP. Real "bodybiulder" due to high ABV but yet rather balanced and complex as for this age. Definitely requires dilution for getting into it.
    • Nose
      Fresh, sweet, candied, acid drops, grapes, hint of smoke
    • Taste
      Sweet, spicy, caramelly, berry marmalade, orange zest
    • Finish
      Medium-long, sweet, oaky, slightly malty, berry jam
