  3. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Both HPs are clearly related. The cask numbers fuel the assumption that
    they matured close to each other, which would explain their similarity a bit.
    Whatever the case, they are both great HPs.
    • Nose
      The nose is as good as identical to that one of the Smoking Buffalo,
      with hints of red fruit and a great smokiness, however subtle. It is just a tad
      sweeter and the white chocolate turns into Galak. Remember that one? With the
      roasted rice? Wonderful.
    • Taste
      On the palate, too, it is clearly a sibling of the Smoking Buffalo, but
      this one does have a Sharp edge and a wonderful salty touch to it.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, nicely smoky, spicy and warming.
