A drier expression of HP from the norm and all the more fascinating for that.Recommended.
Aged 21 Years
Islands (Non Islay)
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Rounded,deep and mossy. Aromatic, toasty oak tangerine zest almost floral smokiness:incense,scented candles. Tantalising mix of the fragrant,the\rsweet and the dry. Best neat.
Palate: Spicy with plenty of ginger and nutmeg. Good length,dry smoke, then heather. Mellow,yet firm enough\rto add a layer of complexity.
Comment: A drier expression of HP from the norm and all the more fascinating for that.Recommended.
Nose: Phenolic and marine. Boat tar. Wet rope. Then sweeter notes. Vanilla waffles. On time a floral note. Orange\rblossom? 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!
