Nose
Phenolic. An asphalted road in summer after a heavy shower. Sweet grassy notes rise up behind the tar and smoke. Lemon balm. Vanilla syrup.
Palate
Round and sweet. The alcohol is perfectly mastered. Not as smoky as expected. Juicy pear. Getting spicy.
Finish
Dry, with a slight sooty feel.
Comment
Refreshing and well balanced. The nose promises more than it delivers on the palate. I have never come across such a phenolic HP.

Nose
Big, coal tar soap. Cleaning the fire grate out, very sooty. Some sweetness comes through, citrus and creamy oak.
Palate
The peat has drifted off and left poached pears and creamy oak.
Finish
Peated and short.
Comment
HP really? Well integrated though and an uplifting dram.
