    In the nose very mineral, grassy and fruity, but in taste it gets its typical HP smoky touch. Very tasty and pleasant, certainly a good dram.

      Some fruitiness, citrus, pretty some alcohol though not too stinging. Mineral, with some grassy notes, hay. Far away a whiff of smoke but hardly noticeable. Later on the alcohol gets more pungent. Some floral and vegetal notes, pretty rich nose.

      Now immediately definately recognizable as a HP, with this typical smokiness over a fruity base. Orange, some pepper, honey. Full bodied.
    • Finish
      88 88
      More typical HP smoke now, pretty strong, spicy, pepper. Some orange, warming, pretty long and present.

    In the nose certainly a bit sharp and stabbing, but certainly also a hint of flowers and hay. A floral, sweet taste and here too the alcohol really tickles your throat. For me this is really a beautiful Orkney
