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

    A little disappointing HP which is not getting any better in the glass ... would not buy it for me ...

    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.

  6. 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.

  8. irrerelevant scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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".

  9. rg-80 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    This is for me the example of a well balanced whisky. Hints of smoke, hints of sherry, smooth oily taste with some spice and salt. A medium long finish which gives back some freshness. I really like it. It´s my favorite drink on Friday night after a long working week - balancing out what´s have been unbalanced during the week....

  10. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The palate and finish are as good as those of the
    1998, but the nose of this one is in another league. This is really good stuff.
    Between 50 and 60 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is less sweet, yet more fruity. Orange
      marmalade and mirabelles. Mint and honey, subdued peat and mineraly. Lemon grass. Hints of the sea, albeit in the background. Leather and
      beeswax, albeit light. Nice nose! The longer you
      leave it, the more citrus and peat it shows.
    • Taste
      The attack is oily and fruity. Hints of orangettes and
      quite some dried apricots. Honey. A little zesty and nicely spicy on pepper and
      nutmeg. A bit salty, a bit smoky. Comes together nicely and is eminently
      quaffable.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium to long on lemon grass and
      liquorice.
