29 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.03 points

  1. ctu scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    There is a lot of version of the batches, it's a dynamic, fruity one.
    • Nose
      Sherry, peat, fruit, spicy oak and salted caramel.
    • Taste
      Powerful and creamy. Lot of fruits, sherry, peat and smoke, spices.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity, spicy.

  2. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Nose: sherry, smoke, chocolate, moka, herbs, wax, chocolate orange cake

    Mouth: bold attack, quite thick, everything from the nose with sherry waves, each wave adding flavours, first chocolate, then coffee and afterwards raisins.  Other dried fruits are added as well plus maple syrup, dark honey and tobaco leaves.Finish: not the longest but the transformation of flavours on the mouth lasted quite long

  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This particular 18 year is the best I have had out of all the dumpy and flat bottle I have tried over the years.

    See my notes from last year for  different bottle that was not even close to this one.

    There are huge batch variations on quality with this particular HP OB.

  4. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    For an 18 year old this is just about perfect but there is massive batch variation on these HP bottles.
    • Nose
      Some coffee notes, milk chocolate, a little peat, red plum, a little closed.
    • Taste
      The palate on this one is very fruity compared to other 18 year olds I have had, hints of raspberry and black currant, a lovely peat infusion mixing with salty brine and the sherry is in just the right proportion
    • Finish
      Good medium length , with the fruit coming through at the end.

  5. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Not an outstanding whisky but the sum of the parts all add up.

    I actually think the flat bottle of 2007 onwards was a few points better than this.

  7. ErzWhisky scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      old leather; gentle sherry with spices; old wooden barrel; Sweetish heather honey; very little smoke in the background
    • Taste
      slightly sweetish; spices; rather dry sherry; light smoke with heather
    • Finish
      pleasantly warm; getting a little drier; lots of spices again; all pretty closely interwoven; long

  10. Dede scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Color: Amber
    Nose: Gourmand, with a superb dominant on honey thousand flowers. The sherry is sweet and develops a very nice alliance of honey and dried fruits reminiscent of some Arab pastries (baklava for connoisseurs). Floral notes are also present, marrying this sweetness (Turkish delight). The aeration reveals a nice woody as well as peeled and mixed fruit (fruit salad in fact) while the dried fruits pass in the background.
    Palate: More power than suggested on the nose. The palate is relatively woody, but also creamy, creamy and greedy. Dried fruits (dates), honey, bitter oranges, a touch of dark chocolate.
    Final: Ongue and intense to its 43%, it grows on dry sherry and woody end.
    Conclusion: A very nice HP, which must go well after a good meal if the dishes were not too strong, because it is not here heavy artillery, but a nice little sweetness .
