I had toyed with the idea of buying HP12 but feared I would be disappointed. I had read some poor reviews and so was wary of spending hard earned money on something that didn't deliver.

I eventually was won over by a glass on a night out and decided a bottle was not going to be wasted. I am glad of the purchase and have no regrets.

I recently got another to share with friends at a Whisky Club and it went down a treat there too. As an entry level it is honest and good value.

The nose gives wafts of molasses and fruit. On the palate it slowly builds to a nice well rounded mouth filling flavour. Starting with a sweet honey, orange peel it is smooth and creamy with mild spices and grassy undertones. The finish has a nice peppery bite to it and is medium long.

If in doubt I would buy it as it is a pleasant drop which in terms of value delivers what you would expect.
