    Color: antique gold / amber

    Nose: Light combination of malt, peat, sherry and light smoke. Dried fruits such as apricots and sultanas. Cookies. Hints of wood and spices. It reminds me of walking along a quay in a port.

    Taste: Fairly sweet with honey, heather and a little peat smoke. The herbal tea comes to mind.

    Finish: Medium. Sweet at first, then dry. A little honey, licorice, anise and earth.

    I added a few drops of water which brought more peat and malt to the nose. You can smell it with and without water.

    Fruity, herbal and spicy Highland Park. Not a trace of smoke. It reminded me of Old Pulteney 17yo.

    Evaluated blindly from 5 known samples. I guessed An Cnoc 22yo.
    • Nose
      Chocolate, caramel, mint, dandelion, rosemary, egg yolks, cane sugar.
    • Taste
      To sour, slightly soapy. Light. Mint, leavened dough, lemon peel, peach, nectarine, white grapes, mango, lemon grass, fennel, cumin, unripe plum.

      Adding water only softens the taste.
    • Finish
      Slightly woody and fresh. Menthol, white wine, powdered sugar, candied ginger, grape tassel.

    Oldie, but goodie. Now it's empty.. Been my soft and mellow favorite for many, many years.

    The nose is sweet with notes of almonds, cherries, and vanilla. The taste is smooth, thick and smoky with cinnamon, honey, and dried orange peel. The finish is warm, woody, smoky, and long.

  8. molar3rd scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Some vanilla and heather honey. Caramel and dark fruits (Cherries,Plums), but not very deep as expected. Medium to light sherry I’d say.

    Palate: Wee oak, Citrus and again some dark fruit and wood spice.

    Finish : Not one of the longest I’ve sensed in HPs. Nice, but not quite there.

    All in all I must say i am not very impressed with this one, I had better HPs, and this duty free version with its 40% ABV is not much of a bargain.

    I liked it better from time to time, one should keep it in the mouth for a long time, maritime, salty, some smoke, light sherry, ripe papaya and passion fruit, walnut, clear Brennereicharakter, full, but not as dense as the 18s, sweet fruit, like Fruit juice, light vanilla, mineral, very pleasant and balanced, some creamy caramel, reminiscent of baked apple, almonds, malt beer, too bad it has only 40% vol, short finish, takes place essentially "forward".
