Michael Jackson

Nose
Polished leather. Mature, finessed.
Palate
Firmly malty. Hint of smoky peat, plus rooty liquorice and anise. Tightly combined flavours.
Finish
Surprisingly fresh oak. Sappiness and log fires; warming.
Comment
More sophisticated, especially in the finish. Better balanced, but less voluptuous maltiness.

Jim Murray

Nose
A faultlessly clean and deep sherry aroma with a mint residue and beautiful lemon notes. Compelling.
Palate
Deep, moderately dry throughout with a slow build up of peppery spices and smoke. Malty, grapey succulence with some cocoa bitterness giving extra complexity.
Finish
Amazingly long and brilliantly weighted, the fruitiness sweetens the malt gracefully.
Comment
A really excellent and classy Aberlour showing amazing complexity for its age.
