See A020481 for another version.

a(A208662(n)) = A065091(n) and a(m) <> A065091(n) for m < A208662(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 29 2012

Records are in A025019, their indices in A051610. - Ralf Stephan, Dec 29 2013

Note that these primes do not all belong to a twin prime pair. The first instance is a(110) = 23. - Michel Marcus, Aug 17 2020 from a suggestion by Pierre CAMI
