  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A bit of an atypical HP, if you ask me. Very good, but a bit too light
    to my taste. A typical card players whisky. And very friendly priced.
    • Nose
      The nose is pretty closed. It takes patience and hand warmth to reveal
      heather, white fruit and vanilla ice cream. Agreeable, but very light.Hang on. Did
      I not just try this? Did I accidentally switch glasses? This is very much like
      the 12 Year Old HP from Archives. However? This one has pears, rather than
      banana. And something that reminds me of eggnog.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is sweet and fruity, but oh so light. Both white and
      yellow fruits coming through. Light on the spices with a salty twist. This is
      dangerously drinkable. Break out the cards, put up a chair in the sun and
      before you know it, you will be opening a second bottle.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium in length and wonderfully smoking towards the
      death.
