As I open this bottle, I am indeed excited. Brilliant light amber/straw coloured yellow. Much lighter colour than my 15 or 18, but with a similar hue to the Leif Ericsson. Initially... a seemingly typical HP nose. sweet toffee and smoke, honey plus some floral notes with a wee bit more strength than most HP's. Taste: In order... sweeeeet toffee, a smokey background, with some burn too! I detect seaweed, salty sea air and white chocolate. Nutty and creamy, but covered in smoke the whole time. Very nice. Burns like the 15, but sweet and chewy like the 18. I think I'll have another. Slainte Mhath!
