    This HP has been finished for 10months in a Cognac Grande Champagne Cask.
    I think the nose is pretty alcoholic, makes me think of plums liqueur.
    Lot’s of floral notes with a bit of a stale coating.
    Very strong on the palate, no shortage in wood. Hot. Water opens it up nicely but be aware, you can kill it’s power very easily.
    It has that little bit of smoke in the finish that really adds a lot.
    Normally I’m not too fond about finished but I must say that this is certainly one of the more balanced I had. It has a Cognac flavor without losing the HP character.
