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.
