Michael Jackson

Nose
Intense. Drier, flowery, seaweedy, salty.
Palate
Flowery, seaweedy, salty. Flavours very well-combined and rounded. An easily drinkable yet satisfying malt. Has definitely benefited from the extra five years.
Finish
Long, warming, salty.
Comment
An easily drinkable yet satisfying malt. Has definitely benefited from the extra five years.

Jim Murray

Nose
Peat-free (contrary to label) and clean – even cleaner than 10 Years Old. The malt is sweeter, too, with more vanilla, and a hint of butterscotch.
Palate
More discreet malt this time, with a pleasing built up of spices and oak.
Finish
Dry and extremely malty. The oak adds a bitter chocolate finale.
Comment
Wondrously peat-free for an Islay but lacking in depth. Even so, this is rather lovely stuff.
