Interesting, very different from the other HP's I've experienced (12, 18, 25), A few people I know balked at the idea that a 16yo with fancy packaging costs as much as this does, I kind of agree. There are really only 2 reasons why you would buy this whisky:
1, you are a massive HP fan and you must own every bottle they release
2, you are a massive HP fan and you want to experience a different style of HP that is also bottled at cask strength.
In reality however when it comes down to it the 18yo HP is better and costs significantly less and the 25yo is better and costs around the same.
Also about the thor I have to mention that this whisky does really well with a few drops of water, like really really well. If reviewed with a few drops I'd rate it around 92. Also on a superficial note the package is very nice, not flimsy or cheap in any way.
