A touch of sherry too.
t: sweet honey with salt and a whiff of smoke
f: The theme carries right through - peat, honey, heather and salt. Long, long, long
These are old notes. I haven't had this for - well, too long. And the notes were made a long while before I finished the bottle. It had been open a year or two by then, so it may not reflect the newly opened bottle?
C57. At present i have 3 unopened bottles of 25yr, at 48.1%,51.5% and 53.5% 2000 bottling. Ihave just tried a 50.7 and was a little disappointed. Which is the best. I still prefer the 30 year OB.
When i nosed the 50.7 for the first time it immediately reminded me of Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve. As i write this i am comparing them and think they are similar but the Royal Lochnagar is sweeter.
Anyway are the other HP 25 bottles better than the 48.1 30 year?
