Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/03/2012

Appearance

Clear, golden amber with a slight green tinge and burnished copper highlights.

Aroma

Sooty seaweed and freshly sawn white wood with a touch of linseed oil and appealing lightly smoked sappy wood, chocolate profiterole and faint orange oils.

Taste

You’ll need to add a splash of water to open but go easy or you’ll drown this beauty. Generous, smoky, buttery oak with stewed fruit and vegetal notes, invigorated by ginger biscuit, a spray of sweet orange oils and rich dark chocolate.

Aftertaste

Delicately smoked cedar and cigar box with hints of hazelnut. Not as easy and sweet as HP18 but with patient watering HP21 is equally rewarding.
