Michael Jackson

Nose
Fresh. Momentarily sweet, then cedary and grassy, with a gentle suggestion of peat.
Palate
Light to medium. Firm. Smooth. Malty. Lots of flavour development. Nutmeg is very evident.
Finish
More spices. Peppery. Some sweetness.
Comment
On this occasion the vintage bottling had the most typical Aberlour character, especially in its spiciness. I also enjoyed its liveliness and complexity. The best Aberlour on the day.

Dave Broom

Nose
Initially quite light and lean. Water is needed to bring out a hot bracken, toffee note with US wood: light hickory, honey and spice. Flat.
Palate
A burst of soft toffee, loads of honey and a dry cereal, peanut brittle edginess. A little musty.
Finish
Chewy, medium length, a little minty.
Comment
Young and light but a bit flat with a wet newspaper note that could be light corkiness.
