Michael Jackson

Nose
Pronounced smoke, rather than peat, though both are evident.
Palate
Syrupy. Sweet grass. Smoky, some drier hints of phenol. A suggestion of juicy wood extracts, or sherry, rounding out the flavours.
Finish
Smoky and emphatically grassy. Sweet grass but also spicy dryness.
Comment
Lots happening. Chimney pots of smoke. I love this whiskey.

Jim Murray

Nose
An elegant floral style of peat, iodine laced with heather offering a deliciously sweet maltiness. Excellent.
Palate
Intensely malty at first. Immaculately clean and juicy, almost.
Finish
Medium, melt-in-the-mouth and luscious.
Comment
Not as complex on the palate as before. This is a truly great whiskey developing in the mould of a youngish Port Ellen.
