Michael Jackson

Nose
Rich, rummy. Figs, almond, aniseed.
Palate
Smooth, creamy. Faintly smoky and tobacco-like.
Finish
Surprisingly restrained. Pruney.
Comment
Some very interesting flavours, but lacks roundness and length.

Jim Murray

Nose
Outstanding aroma, kicked off by a spicy prickle that any Bourbon lover will immediately recognise as the hallmark of the old Ancient Age distillery. Satisfying, deep, gently vanilla-ed and molassed with even a sprig of sweet mint.
Palate
A rip-roaring waxy sweetness checked by a big build up of vanilla-rich oak. Corn is chewy and rye offers a rich-textured background.
Finish
Dries at last as the oak takes command, but rye offers extra depth and a layer of bitterness as does a lingering liquorice.
Comment
Big, moody, uncompromising and complex beyond belief. One of the world's great whiskeys.
