Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: malted barley and a whiff of peat, with just a little something crisp like apples on a bed of light caramel sweetness.
Palate: grainy, nutty, and woody. A little dull.
Finish: sweet, short, and drying.
Bought this in the Moscow airport at the same time as the delicious Macallan Select Oak and found this one to be a big disappointment. I've only had the HP 12, but this has none of its distinctive charm. I rarely reach for this, and whenever I do, I immediately regret it. It isn't that this is a bad whisky -- it tastes perfectly fine. It's just kind of indistinct. I forget it as soon as it is gone.
