The basic great single malt.  Makes a fantastic starter to anyone entering the single malt world.  The sweet sherry coal smoke and the malty/cereal bitterness makes for a fine fixture in any cabinet.  Love the HP 12 for an every day drink.  Not over the top in any way, and not in any way bad or off-putting.  This is just solid good whisky.

n:  Wood varnish and vegetable oil.

 

p:  Sasame oil, hint of charcoal. Oat crackers (those Scottish treats not far from cardboard).  Solid finish.  Nothing special.

This has a little bit of everything.  Some smokey peat and hints of sherry.  The sherry is much more apparent in the older bottlings (90's and earlier).  There is more bourbon influence on the newer flask type bottles.
