    well balanced, very good HP. nice spices from the casks, the typical heather and that subtile smokiness is all there.

  4. Edwin de Lange scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A classic!

  5. saintjimmy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Floral sweetness. I don't detect as much smoke as in the 12YO. Lovely fresh and fruity. Lemongrass and even dill
    • Taste
      very fresh and fruity with a distinctive accent of spices. Fresh star anise. Even a small hint of yoghurt. Sounds like curry!
    • Finish
      oily, fairly greasy. Light notes of toasted oak

  6. mmaclean scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A new expression due out in March, positioned between the 12 and 18 year

    old versions. A fresh and enormously drinkable whisky; very silky, with

    honeyed malt, delicate citrus and berry fruit, floral notes (heather

    and lavender), and a hint of cocoa and sea spray.

  7. Sandman scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Peat, orange, brown sugar, grass, hints of rubber, chocolate, plums, raisins, hints of sulfur and burnt wood.
    • Taste
      Orange, peat, cinnamon, little nuts, honey drop, chocolate, barley, burnt wood, raisins and plums.
    • Finish
      Medium, malted barley, cinnamon, little nuts, burnt wood, peat, chocolate and dried fruit.

  10. jhut scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Is actually a little disappointing, same as the standard bottling of HP, was also disappointing in my memory.
    De Toeter July 23, 2017
    • Nose
      pretty malty, mowed grass showing. Fairly mild with little floral tones. Small pepper, surprisingly spicy in the neu
    • Taste
      fruit, small hint of peat. Tasty malt. Soft, low in alcohol?
    • Finish
      little Kelly Bean-like, sweeter than I thought. Absolutely true.
