I have been looking to pick up one of these old style label 18s for a good while. All the liquor stores in the area which have them want a pretty penny for them. I took a chance after work today to stop by an out of the way liquor store where I have previously found a couple interesting whiskies, what a surprise to see two of these old style HP18s sitting on the shelf at a very reasonable price. On top of that the clerk gave me a nice discount for buying both. I had to break one open right away.
Wow! What a fantastic whiskey. Best I have tasted so far. The nose is heavenly, the palate is like nectar of the gods, the finish is long, smokey, sherried and oh so satisfying.
