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.

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.

gefiel mir von mal zu mal besser, man sollte ihn lange im Mund halten, maritim, salzig, etwas Rauch, heller Sherry, reife Papaya und Maracuja, Walnuss, deutlicher Brennereicharakter, voll, aber nicht so dicht wie der 18er, süße Frucht, wie Fruchtsaft, leichte Vanille, mineralisch, sehr angenehm und ausgeglichen, etwas Sahnekaramell, erinnert entfernt an Bratapfel, Mandeln, Malzbier, schade, dass er nur 40%vol hat, kurzer Abgang, findet im wesentlichen "vorne" statt.

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....

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.

Comments

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.
