- Decent enough dram for £25 - in fact an excellent dram at this price, especially for a 12 yr old age statemented whisky. It's let down a little by its meagre 40%, but I like the subtle signature HP smoke in this. I bought it for the bottle - with the Celtic knot work on the bottle - thinking I'd use it for a 'solera' bottle (creating my own malt blend by adding different malts to it).
- N- Opened up with upfront active sherry nuance that gives you more resin and obvious rubbery phenol characters. Followed by charred infused orange, citrus honey, as well minerality that reflect the terroir.
P- Creamy sherry notes, baileys, sweet coffee. Then a good Old Fashioned that gives a balanced of full orange and angostura mix. Tinge of honey, sweet ginger and subtle sweet smokes.
F- Short-medium, orange drops, some spices, some wood, some honey. Get a wee overloaded with orange as it goes that masked the rest.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- A beauty for this price
