61091The nose is subtle, complex and very nice with oak, green fruits, vanilla and mint, also a hint of peat. Rich, sweet, fruity palate with notes of vanilla and oak. It's sweet, fruity and oaky in a beautiful balance. The finish is oaky and spicy but very nice. By far the best independent bottling of HP I've tried (and one of the best bottlings overall).
