Michael Jackson

Nose
Very aromatic. A robust struggle between the claret's fruit-and-cedar notes and a confident Bowmore smokiness.
Palate
Bowmore beats Bordeaux.
Finish
Toffeeish (more port-like) fruit fights back convincingly. Oak keeps the contestants apart. Finally a salty battle is won by the distillery character.
Comment
The fighter beat the boxer, but it was a wonderfully enjoyable contest.

Jim Murray

Nose
Truly bizarre: the peat seems to have vanished and in its place is a distinctly winey spiciness.
Palate
A biting, puckering zingy, hot spicy attack that in some ways is not too far off a very young Talisker.
Finish
Rich, fruity, almost blackcurrant, then drier cocoa-coffee notes.
Comment
Worth trying for novelty value alone. Too much rough to go with the smooth.
