A touch of sherry too.
t: sweet honey with salt and a whiff of smoke
f: The theme carries right through - peat, honey, heather and salt. Long, long, long
These are old notes. I haven't had this for - well, too long. And the notes were made a long while before I finished the bottle. It had been open a year or two by then, so it may not reflect the newly opened bottle?
C57. At present i have 3 unopened bottles of 25yr, at 48.1%,51.5% and 53.5% 2000 bottling. Ihave just tried a 50.7 and was a little disappointed. Which is the best. I still prefer the 30 year OB.
When i nosed the 50.7 for the first time it immediately reminded me of Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve. As i write this i am comparing them and think they are similar but the Royal Lochnagar is sweeter.
Anyway are the other HP 25 bottles better than the 48.1 30 year?

The 25s tend to be more "in your face" with what they present while the 30 is a more subtle "come sit down with me and have a chat" whisky. I think that my preference would vary based on what I'm doing and how I'm feeling at a particular moment.
I find the same general principles with the Macallan 25 and Macallan 30.
Thanks Ganga. I know what your saying about the 30yr it is a little more delicate than the 25yr, mind i am finding the more of the 50.7 i drink the more i like it.

Lincoln Imp, I tried the 50.7% 25yo HTH against the 48.1% during our HP Online Tasting. I was very impressed with both. Here's the link.
