  1. Fabian scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nice bottling, well worth the price.
    Nice HP profile, I like cask strength.
    Lots of yellow fruit, honey, slightly smoky.
    Good choice from WB and BBR.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Youngish/modern, but really well balanced with vanilla and fruit
    • Taste
      87 87
      Less balanced in compairison to the nose. A bit raw, unfinished. Fruity vanilla again and a bit of anise
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long, warm, slightly bitter. Sweet, honey/caramel.

      A lot of great indie HP’s have been released the last months. This one is nice too, but not one of the best compared to others.
