Michael Jackson

Nose
Creamy, nutty, lightly peaty.
Palate
Full-bodied. Decidedly silky-smooth. Spiced cake. Candied lemon peels. Lots of flavour development.
Finish
Smoky, rooty, treacly. Impeccable balance between sweetness and dryness.
Comment
The obvious sherry ageing really suits Blair Athol. It is a malt that matures quickly, and this is very sophisticated for its age. A lovely whisky.

Jim Murray

Nose
A clean, uncomplicated and rather sweet sherry aroma partially smothers a slightly off-key sub strata.
Palate
Again more massive sweet sherry and surprisingly smoky amid the malt.
Finish
A bitter, rather sharp finale which becomes increasingly dry.
Comment
About as uncomplicated as it gets. Has improved on recent years, though.
