Michael Jackson

Nose
Clean, soft, peatiness. Fresh spiciness. Apricots.
Palate
Cream-toffee. Hints of chocolate, cinnamon, oranges and lemon grass.
Finish
Lightly peaty. Cedary.
Comment
Much more life and structure.

Jim Murray

Nose
Quite lush and fruity. Medium sweet, softly malted but lashings of vanilla.
Palate
Confident and assertive-then the taste buds are treated to an outrageous outbreak of spicy, multi-layered oaky complexity. Earthy stuff.
Finish
Dark chocolate and raisins. Very, very long.
Comment
This is startlingly wonderful. Only for those who prefer a malt that talks. Brilliant.
