  1. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A nice HP, who keeps the promises held by the label: for a 20 years of age, it holds the road and contains what can be expected of a HP of this age. For my part, I nevertheless find that he deserved a little more subtlety and complexity. But I do not sulk my pleasure so far.
    • Nose
      Waves of sea spray (there are others?), Maritime smoke, and, behind these salty and coastal scents, lemon and honey. At times, a dusty cloud passes, then leaves, before returning ... After aeration, the maritime smoke turns into vegetable smoke and dry.
    • Taste
      It is the fruity that shows first the tip of his nose. Lemon syrup, apple, grapes. Spices, salty and peppered, make their place. Then comes a fine vegetable smoke, tenuous.
    • Finish
      The sparkling spices are here mistresses and dominate the final. The smoke, always present without ever being invasive, is here dry. The fruity, meanwhile, disappears quickly. A menthol ripple at the very end of the course.
