Nose
Massive honey sweetness in perfect harmony with soft spice. Some oak and subtle smoke coming through. Orange fruit, peaches, pineapple. Caramel and big honey sweetness again. Soft spicy notes of coffee and perhaps cinnamon.
Taste
Quite prickly at the tongue, big oak influence and nice malt. Dries out the mouth at the swallow which soon after that starts watering like mad. This is where it gets intensely sweet. Honey, sweet citrus fruits, some chocolate and caramel.
Finish
Soft again now, malty sweetness and subtle spice, with a puff of gentle smoke in the background.
Overall
The top gun in HP for me, when it comes to the ‘core range’. Absolutely great whisky.
