Michael Jackson

72
Nose
Peaty. Slightly woody. Cereal grain. Apples.
Palate
Oily. Sweet. Fruity. Pears in rich syrup.
Finish
Fruity. Perfumy. Spicy (cloves?). Drying.
Comment
Judging from the very pale colour, the wood did not have much positive input. Hence, perhaps, the lack of Tamdhu's sometime elegance.

Jim Murray

82
Nose
A full malty, slightly abrasive nose.
Palate
Initially hot as the nose suggests, then fades as a sumptuous wave of grassy, sweet malt.
Finish
Drier with some bitter chocolate notes.
Comment
Massive by Tamdhu standards. Brilliant and lingering interplay between cocoa and malt.
