Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
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.
Taster   Martine Nouet
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.
