Michael Jackson

Nose
Aromatic, complex. Peaty, seaweedy, fruity.
Palate
Peaty, spicy, olive-like. Flavours beautifully rounded.
Finish
Oily, peppery.
Comment
A wonderful aperitif. Smoked fish to follow?

Jim Murray

Nose
Charming sea spray dilutes the soft, deep peat. Shades of vanilla and iodine.
Palate
Brilliantly oily, offering a magnificently lingering peaty sheen. Lovely maltiness giving way to some rich dark chocolate.
Finish
The oaky dark cocoa fuses effortlessly with the pulsing peat.
Comment
Complex with the oak making an ultra impressive foil to the peat. Excellent.
