ose: Zesty with lemon drops, sweet wood , peat smoke , earthy peat camphor. Wax and dust.

Palate: Malty, smoke and peat and dirty earth with some zest. Not very complex.

Finish: medium. Bitter earth with spicy wood.

As much as i am a fan of the 12 and 18, this wood profile IMHO is not the one HP shines through. i do prefer the Spanish oak profile. It does remind me a bit of the HP “Thor”, but of course less complex, and not as interesting. or some reason i can not find this one in many online retailers now, i would opt for other malts at the same price range.

I think many would agree with you that they favor the 12 yr, and 18 yr expressions due to their more pronounced sherry influence courtesy of the Spanish Oak casks.

That said I really do enjoy the 15 yr HP; something about it makes it unique, and truth be told it'll always find a spot on my shelf - even if it's a hard whisky to find.
