Nose
Rounded,deep and mossy. Aromatic, toasty oak tangerine zest almost floral smokiness:incense,scented candles. Tantalising mix of the fragrant,the sweet and the dry. Best neat.
Palate
Spicy with plenty of ginger and nutmeg. Good length,dry smoke, then heather. Mellow,yet firm enough to add a layer of complexity.
Finish
Crisp,long.
Comment
A drier expression of HP from the norm and all the more fascinating for that.Recommended.

Martine Nouet

88
Nose
Phenolic and marine. Boat tar. Wet rope. Then sweeter notes. Vanilla waffles. On time a floral note. Orange blossom? Some citrus (lemon sorbet).
Palate
Smooth. Sweet and malty with a distinctive iodinic note; Salty feel. Fizzy. Dry spices.
Finish
Long,dry with an oaky sherried edge.
Comment
A fresh and dry whisky. Gradual delivery on the nose.The palate is more in one piece. But a beautiful one!
