Michael Jackson

Nose
Smoothly aromatic. Nutty malt. Smoky. Very good, appetising medicinal Islay character.
Palate
Rounded, firm, malty, dry creaminess. Tightly combined flavours.
Finish
Leafy, ferny, malty, sandy, smoky.
Comment
A touch of astringency that seems to be more than Islay iodine.

Jim Murray

Nose
Understated peat offers no more than a smoky sprinkling on the juicy apple and vanilla.
Palate
Much fuller and fatter in the mouth with an immediate outbreak of spices. Impressively delicate.
Finish
Medium length and perhaps just a little thin. The coffee feature of old is less intense. Holds its age impressively.
Comment
A quite delicious version but not anything like the heavier, more complex 17 Years Old of old.
