Michael Jackson

Nose
Varnish. Shellac. Linseed oil. A French polisher's shop.
Palate
Thinnish. Drying. Wood shavings. Resin. Liquorice root. Opens with water. Soft liquorice.
Finish
Woody. Drying.
Comment
The chestnut colour betrays the time this whisky has spent in oak. I have tasted much woodier whiskies - but not oakier Auchentoshans.

Dave Broom

Nose
Rich, resinous: coffee grounds, treacle toffee, Dundee cake, walnut, molasses, floral top notes.
Palate
Powerful. Oak, that treacle toffee again, spices, tobacco, Tunnock's caramel wafers, coffee cake. Good balance and feel.
Finish
Fairly dry.
Comment
Has held its own very well for such an allegedly light spirit. Mature and substantial.
