Michael Jackson

75
Nose
Flowery. Very herbal. Bay leaves. Fragrant.
Palate
Peppercorns, but also some creamy sweetness. Parsley.
Finish
More parsley, and very peppery.
Comment
Seems to have faded slightly with age.

Jim Murray

85
Nose
A rich tapestry of subtle but confident peat and oak interwoven with a sexy malty sweetness.
Palate
The peat rises early to state the dram's style. A fine iodiney stratum manages to stay the course, offering a peaty pulse as sweeter malt notes arrive.
Finish
Quite long with echoes of peat and roast Columbian coffee but a very well controlled vanilla.
Comment
A malt lacking in complexity perhaps but certainly not in class.
