Tasting Notes by TheConscience
Not much to add to the hundreds of reviews of HP 21 across the globe. It's good, made even better by the fact that I secured this dram when the "KGBO" (thanks Nozinan) had HP21 at 38% cheaper than its current list price. In a bizarre and inexplicable move, they even lowered their standard price by $50, which is why I grabbed it in the first place. Worth it.
Nose: soft honey and peat, wisps of sweet smoke, light grassiness, vanilla, and butterscotch.
Palate: sweet arrival. Honey with faint peat and smoke, bread, then develops into lightly spiced honey and imperceptible peat.
Finish: sweet, light peat. Herbal, grassy, and drying in that pleasant HP way. There is a recurring and pleasant tannic spice once all has subsided.
Yup, still good.
