Michael Jackson

Nose
Peaty, earthy, almost pungent.
Palate
Oily. Seed cake. Banana cake. Spicy.
Finish
Big. Spicy. Lemon grass. Fragrant peat. Long.
Comment
A whisky that starts life with some restraint has certainly developed over the years.

Jim Murray

Nose
Pipe smoke, citrus and waxy leather: beautifully sweet despite the big oak. Overall, somewhat bourbony.
Palate
Intense toasted malt-oak intensity before it drifts back off into bourbon-land.
Finish
Slightly bitter honeycomb and waxy-though the demerara sweetness continues.
Comment
Few malts reach this age intact. This has - and with some considerable panache.
