  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A soft plummy nose, gentle with some spice and faint peat.
    After a minute or so biscuit and green apple, very pleasant.
    Spicy and fruity basically at first, a little stewed apple, with a touch of wood but at 40 years you would expect that, but no issues with it. Balance is good.
    As you go it gets a little dryer.
    Finish is pretty long, gentle with a little icing sugar sweetness.
    This was obviously close to going under at 40.9%, very good but if it had been bottled a few years earlier, even 4 or 5 and it been over 46% perhaps, it would have been awesome.
    A very good, fragile old HP, great stuff.
    Edit
    After 5 minutes in the glass there is more of everything and it seems even stronger now abv wise

  3. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    You have to stand on a very classic Bourbon HP, which does not offer too much variety, but what he does, he does alright.
    • Nose
      True, really oldschool and typical HP after all, ancient superficial heathland, coconut, vineyard peach, almonds, tannins, dusty wooden box, old tobacco
    • Taste
      The same from the nose, much pagan grass, coconut and light peach, with leather, lavender, rosemary, green tea, parchment, wax, almonds, old wooden box
    • Finish
      Medium to long, very gentle and dry, hay, heather grass, almonds, oak, tea
