Michael Jackson

Nose
Wonderfully peaty and smoky.
Palate
Smooth, oily. Sweet, perfumy, smoke.
Finish
Smoky. Sweet grass.
Comment
The revival of rustic peatiness adds a whole new element to today's palette of Irish whiskey flavours.

Jim Murray

Nose
Sweet, clean peat, vanilla and-floral notes. One of the most profound and complex of Irish noses.
Palate
Again very sweet, peaty. Softly honeyed and oily Mild molasses, fabulously smoky.
Finish
Becomes drier as some oak bites, but the peat just keeps on rumbling along.
Comment
This single malt had suffered from an identity crisis over the last year or so. Some vattings had become slightly off-key, dirty even, and the malt had lost direction. This bottling, however, is back to its brilliant best.
