Michael Jackson

Nose
Very fragrant. Slight sherry, lots of seaweed, hint of salt and soda-bread.
Palate
Malty. Soft, syrupy. Marzipan. Almonds. Grassy.
Finish
Peat comes surging through.
Comment
A delicious, appetising, new expression of Black Bottle. As a blend, it is a star.

Jim Murray

Nose
Grassy grain thins out the deep peat. Saltiness adds depth and compliments peppery notes.
Palate
Chewy and smoky. Flavours intensify as the rich, clean and oily peat really kick in. Malty too.
Finish
Sensational. Waves of peat give way to cocoa/coffee effect. Unbelievably long for a blend.
Comment
Simmering, full-blooded blend that celebrates its 100% Islay malt roots by taking no prisoners whatsoever. Brilliant.
