    Wow, I am really
    impressed with this HP. Too bad you cannot find it anymore. ‘They do not make
    ‘m like this no more, lad.’ Ain’t that the truth. Thank you, Green Man, for the
    sample. I understand that they bottle is still open at your bar. I’ll pop in
    again soon.
    • Nose
      Wow, what a wonderful
      nose. Big aroma of candied lemon rind, sweet malt and all kinds of grasses.
      Some nougat, lemongrass and heather in the background. Hint of pistachios. Peat?
      Smoke? Nothing of the sort. Very clean.
    • Taste
      It is quite different
      on the palate. Very alcoholic arrival despite the modest ABV. Very powerful and
      now the peat is quite prominent. A salty edge. Really good. Only in the second
      wave the fruit emerges. Again all of it lemon (peel included), joined by some
      nuts. Some vanilla and woodsmoke make it picture perfect.
    • Finish
      It lingers
      wonderfully long in the finish with loads of pepper at the death.
