Michael Jackson

Nose
Distinct marshmallow. Peach blossom. Faint cocoa.
Palate
Light. Hazelnuts. Cream. Buttercups. Violets. Lavender. Herbal.
Finish
A little snappy and aggressive.
Comment
The flavours tail off, as though the whisky is going to sleep. Smooth and easy, but lacks liveliness. Springtime never quite blossoms into summer.

Paul Pacult

Nose
Absolutely beguiling perfumed bouquet that features multi-layered and mature scents of apricot, pear, sweet cereal, and honey. Enchanting.
Palate
The palate entry speaks of Strathisla smoke. The mid-palate offers complex tastes of oaky vanilla, cocoa and butterscotch. Medium to full-bodied.
Finish
It glides down the throat in embers-warm, silky and mildly peaty tastes.
Comment
The blend for grown-ups, for people who have made their rites of passage and are ready to enjoy their success. Sweet, but not cloying. Buxom, but not overblown. Balanced.
