    I like him. Overall, the HP 12yo OA very similar, but the Fascadale packs in nose, taste and finish again a fad on it and acts more intense and thus not too round (complacent) like the OA. And that's exactly what I like.
    • Nose
      a mixture of bitter herbs and sweet honey; There is a slightly smoky note reminiscent of a smokehouse; slightly salty with apples and lemon; a little menthol from the alcohol is present in the background; pepper
    • Taste
      a bit of smoke, again pretty dry and in addition comes a neat portion of oak; again honey and lemons, it constantly changes between bitter and sweet, cereals
    • Finish
      medium-long and beautifully spicy with neat light oak; honey is added to that, on the whole it looks a bit fleshy; again decent smoke; At the end, the oak is pressed again neatly. There remains a taste of smoked meat

  6. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This is a powerful dram characterized by cereal and pepper in my opinion. Some fruit in the background, specially on the nose. Fells young and the characteristics of Highland Park peat is there. Probably refill bourbon casks. Thanks Thorbjörn Schönmeyr for the super sized sample :-)

    (Rating interval 82-86)
    • Nose
      A lot of cereal, vanilla crackers and well-balanced peat. Lime oregano artificial lemon and melon flavored sherbet.
    • Taste
      Creamy vanilla, mineral and smoky herbs are followed by a blast of mixed pepper corns, black pepper, white pepper and even cayenne pepper.
    • Finish
      The finish is warm and rather short with lemon pepper and smoky table salt.

  8. SilentStill scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Good material for a very good price. You can not expect more here. Well-accessible aromas with a recognizable red (herbal) thread make joy.
    • Nose
      Meadow-savvy on no longer quite fresh leather, mossy forest floor, but also quite fresh with quite recognizable coastal flavors and a gentle hint of smoke that accompanies all flavors.
    • Taste
      Stronger and more voluminoeser than the nose. The 46% are sufficiently powerful rueber. Some aromas of mild tobacco, Italian herbs (basil, thyme and also oregano).
    • Finish
      The herbs are also dominant here. A bit thin at the back, but good in length.
