Nose: More impressive and has the same honey base, less overt smokiness, and more high pitch notes. Lemon, salt, wax, malt, and sugar/honey. Stewing flowers, vanilla, cinnamon, and sweet baking spices. Sweet ginger, pineapple, and pepper. And... this is a pretty prototypical HP.

Palate: It definitely is, but it's got a more lemony and waxy profile. I like this. Sugar, honey sweet. A few drops of flower extract. It's not perfumy, thankfully. The wood provides some decent balance and handy bitterness. Pineapple, ginger, apple, and pepper. The wax is salty; however, it works here. Wisps of smoke, too.

Finish: The same as above, but with some tropical fruits added to the mix, like mango and papaya. There's a sugar note, but it's light and merges well with the rest. Pleasant.
