    Wow. Thirty years ago, the HP style was still a real, real, solid brand, that's for sure. I have not had such an intense and expressive 12-year-old in my glass - neither from HP today (ha!) Nor from any distillery of any time. This is impressive. Great experience, I would recommend it to anyone, if a division opens!
    • Nose
      elegant smoke, milk chocolate, thick caramel, butter cream, freshly sawn wood, hazelnuts, oranges, lemons, honey, ginger biscuits, raisins, Mars bars, vanilla, tobacco, mint, dates, parsley, heather, watercress, walnuts, walnut oil - very nice nose
    • Taste
      40% ?? Highland Park 12 ??? Wow, great onset, silky, creamy, pepper, nutmeg, cappuccino, raisins, honey, a whole basket full of nuts, caramel (lightly burnt), Nutella bread, parsley, some orange juice, linseed oil, walnut oil
    • Finish
      long, spicy, intense, with pepper, nuts, cappuccino, caramel sauce, even the slight pungency of fresh parsley and the fine smoke are felt for a long time ... and in the end mint, linseed oil and walnut oil ... very impressive
