Michael Jackson

Nose
Deceptively restrained.
Palate
Spicy. Saffron. Garden mint. Lemon juice. Tea.
Finish
Smoky.
Comment
I like young Islays, but this hyperactive whisky is just too frisky. The flavours need time to meld. Even with those shortcomings, it is an Ardbeg…

Dave Broom

Nose
Intense and vibrant. Lime zest, green grass, smoked fish and peat fires. Quite dry.
Palate
Initially seems like an explosion in the peat shed, but has great balance: sweet centred, malt, citrus. Fresh and exciting.
Finish
Oatcakes and smoke. Long.
Comment
A swaggering young dude.
