  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Apple crumble with cinnamon on the nose, which makes the palate really sweet but with a pepper punch which and with some peat mixes really well together, it shows good balance with a lingering finish.
    My only wish is that is that i had a bottle of this or a large sample, but grateful to have tried this because this is right up there with the very best HP.

    Trying this sample from GunnarN to check if my tastebuds are alive.
    Whiffs of smoke, herbs, spices and green apples and stare fruit.

    Honey, heather, smoke, old style whisky, love it, thank you Gunnar

    A very interesting bottling, quite different, of course a bit HP-like but still different
