Quite strong peat for a HP. Vanilla pods, burnt wood & some dry sweetness. Pears, apples if I may add. On the palate, the peat isn’t as strong. A lot of oakiness (reused casks) and mild bitterness. A peppery note. Apples & Creme Brulee. A touch of coastal salineness almost reminding a Bunnahabhain 12. I loved the finish. Medium long if I may say. Burnt wood, pepperiness and a bit of gentle fruitiness. This HP is not muted. It is not subtle but bustling with flavours. It lacks the classic bourbon cask HP taste but definitely a nice attempt. The bottle and the pack have exceptional art work.
