Tasted neat (can't gulp, but surprisingly smooth neat if sipped)
Nose: Honey, some peat and smoke (first time I ever nosed peat in an HP), various fruits
Mouth: Thick, mouth-coating, honey, plums, raisins, peat, minty-flavored smoke at the end
Finish: Long finish, sherry dominated, mainly plums and raisins, no smoke or peat in the finish. Longest finish I have ever had in an HP.
The only other CS HP I had was the Lone Star Cask Edition #1. That one was older (15 years) and had a more chocolate-orange tinge to it.
Of the HP I have had I would have to rate this one as tops..even better than the HP 18 year. Good stuff.
I was thinking that maybe the distillate in 1994 was slightly different than 1995..then again maybe that one extra year helped as well.
