Tasting Notes by lucadanna1985
Body: long and thin legs.
Nose: soothing, sweet with honey and fruits, subtle sherry notes. Overall very pleasing.
Palate: sherry hits you at first, this is a typical HP profile but stronger and subtler at the same time. Refined. Second sip: the sherry comes up mixed with spices and a vague fruitiness, extremely pleasant again. The ABV is evident and it tingles your mouth together with the spices. Wood in the aftertaste, it grows up sip after sip, accompanied by heather honey. I really like it!
Finish: complex honeyed finish, with wood, sherry and spices.
Overall: balanced orcadian beauty: sherry on one side, honey on the other, livened up by spices and polished with a touch of wood. A heart-warmer.
