Michael Jackson

Nose
Driftwood bonfires on the beach, then home to a hot, steamy bath in coal-tar soap.
Palate
Syrupy, sensuous, tar-like.
Finish
Charcoal. Perfumy. Fresh. Therapeutic.
Comment
Real Ardbeg peatiness and smokiness.

Jim Murray

Nose
Heavily oaked and richly sherried, salty heavy weight aromas. Prickly spice adds to the aroma.
Palate
Absolutely mind-blowing. The sweet peat is dense and chewy but also offers lighter smoky tones, too and eventually oak and iodine.
Finish
Sweet and toasty, some hickory and highly roasted coffee blends well with the massive peat.
Comment
The nose may be a little disappointing, but in all a glorious experience not to be missed.
