Michael Jackson

Nose
Distinctly almondy. Some soft, perfumy, winey spiciness.
Palate
Toasted almonds, raisins, slightly burnt toffee.
Finish
Delicate, elusive, flavours. Long, soft, soothing.
Comment
All the woods are influential, especially the port in the finish. A very dexterous balancing act, but is the house character eventually overwhelmed?

Jim Murray

Nose
Intense malt with a unmistakable sherry richness. Quite firm, fruity and clean.
Palate
Sweet, quite lush start: malt, sherry and soft spice.
Finish
Lashings of toffee with bigger sherry than of old. Dark fudge sweetness gives way to much drier cocoa notes.
Comment
A bigger whisky than of a year or two back with the sherry making a much bigger impression. Quite fruity and full where once it was slightly powdery and over-dependent on the malt character alone.
